What is File Extractor?

File Extractor is a program from Fried Cookie that provides the user with basic utilities for extracting a file or decompressing an archive. The program recognizes popular archiving formats like ZIP, RAR and JAR; plus ARC, CAB, LZH and HQX.

Archives can be decompressed via two methods; one is to drag the files from their directory or desktop, and then drop these onto the decompression box; and the other is to click on the “Click Here to Browse for a File” link, also located on the decompression box. The decompression box is located on the top portion of the user interface.

When file extraction is underway, the decompression box displays the archive type and directory path of the archive; and directly below this box is the decompression status. The user may choose to save the extracted files to a default location specified by the program or specific their preferred location. The user may cancel the decompression process at any time.

When the archive has been completely decompressed, the user will be informed via a prompt on the decompression, “Extraction Completed Successfully.” File Extractor is a free program compatible with Windows XP, Vista and 7.
