Basic file ripper

Rip and save files with this intuitive program.

X-Ripper is an intuitive program that lets users extract and save files of a particular type from a specific directory. There's not a lot to it, but it does work as advertised.

The program's interface is simple and easy to understand. Users select the source and destination folders they want to use and then select the file type(s) they're looking for. Users can select graphics, video, or audio files only, or hand-pick from among 19 file types. Once the desired file types are selected, the program goes to work searching for them in the specified location. When files are found, the program automatically rips them and saves them to the destination folder. The program does not have a Help file, and although the included Readme file offers very rudimentary instructions for the program's operation, users who aren't already familiar with file ripping might have some questions about how the program works. Overall, although the program does not have much in the way of features or options, it does work well and is easy to use. We think it is a good choice for basic file ripping.

X-ripper is free. It comes as a zip file and works after extraction with no need for installation. We recommend this program to all users; there's nothing outstanding about it, but it works fine.
