BetterZip – Archiving tool 4.0.1
BetterZip lets you quickly inspect archives without first extracting their contents.
- Extract Only Files You Really Need: If you only need a few files or folders from a larger archive, you don’t have to extract the whole thing. Simply drag the files you need from the BetterZip window to any Finder window or the desktop.
- Open Archives Without Extracting: Not only can BetterZip open archives without first extracting them but you can also search for a file using the iTunes-like interface. BetterZip can open and extract archives with the most common formats: ZIP, SIT, TAR, XAR, XZ, GZip, BZip2, RAR, 7-Zip, CPIO, ARJ, LZH/LHA, JAR, WAR, CAB, ISO, CHM, RPM, DEB, NSIS, BIN, HQX, DMG, EPUB, and Winmail.dat.
- Create Archives: Simply drag files and folders from your hard drives, disks, or network places into your new zip file. You no longer have to copy all the files into a temporary folder first. The supported formats are ZIP, TAR, GZip and BZip2 compressed TAR, XAR, 7-ZIP, and RAR (using the external RAR commandline tool). Large archives can also be split.
- Protect Your Data: BetterZip can protect your data with a password and create AES-256 encrypted archives. 7-zip and rar archives can also be protected.
- Update Archives: Add new or updated files to existing archives. Remove any file or folder from an archive, or even move files around inside the archive as if it were a normal folder.
- Make Archives Compatible: Strip Mac-specific files and resource forks from archives for best compatibility with systems like Windows or Linux.
- Fixed a possible crash when opening an archive through the Favorites sidebar and extracting it with a preset that moves the archive after the extraction
- Fixed a possible crash when extracting or compressing an archive through the queue with the “show save panel” option set in the used preset
- In some places in the user interface BetterZip 3 was referenced instead of BetterZip 4
- “Reveal Service Folder” in Preferences > Presets didn’t work correctly
- Extracting tar archives with multiple root items with the queue didn’t create an extra folder when not set to “Always”
- BetterZip services and the BetterZip button in Finder didn’t automatically show the queue window when compressing or extracting files
- “Opening an archive from Finder immediately extracts it” affected the compression, not only the extraction when dropping files on dock icon
- The Dropzone action could crash Dropzone after completion
- Files were sorted in reverse order when applying a filter in the favorites sidebar
- Extracting the BetterZip download package with macOS 10.10 built-in Archive Utility or Safari could lead to BetterZip being “damaged”
- When adding multiple parts of a multi-volume archive to the queue through the Finder button, they would all be queued instead of the first part only
- When renaming a file or folder in an archive, BetterZip now only selects the name without the file extension, just like Finder
