Editors' Review

+

It doesn't unpack your luggage, but this utility greatly simplifies expanding many popular archive types. From the utilitarian interface to the minimal options, AutoUnpack is designed for getting a specific job quickly accomplished. Many archive unpackers require a few steps to expand a RAR or ZIP file, but AutoUnpack does the job in a single step. You merely point to a folder containing your ZIP or RAR files and choose an output directory. Press one button to start a process that ends with your archive perfectly unpacked, or let the program automatically unpack that directory every set number of minutes. You can make downloads fall into your unpack directory; AutoUnpack remembers what it has unpacked and operates only on new archives.

Our favorite feature has to be AutoUnpack:NZB. You set an e-mail address for this application to monitor, and whenever it finds an e-mail with the proper subject and coding, it searches Usenet for the requested file. AutoUnpack downloads all the file pieces, properly combines them, then decodes them. Unfortunately, creating the correct NZB coding must be handled with another program. Some users may be disappointed with the default settings, but it takes only a couple of minutes to make easy changes to all settings. Any Usenet fan, or RAR user, will find this freeware unpacker immensely useful.

"Handy but very sloooooooow"

November 07, 2009  |  By bionicsteve

 |  Version: AutoUnpack 4.4.4

Pros

Does batch PAR2 repairs (years after QuickPAR users have been asking for it) and unraring, unsupervised.

Cons

Much, MUCH slower to repair than running QuickPAR and WinRAR. But In guess it's okay if you don't mind letting it process overnight - and it could take all night if you have a lot of large damaged archive sets.

Summary

Use it to batch process a lot of archives, but if you only have a handful to do it's faster doing it by hand.

"HUH?"

May 12, 2007  |  By mulliganmaster

 |  Version: AutoUnpack 4.4.4

Pros

Don't know since I hate when a program does what this one does - See CONS

Cons

Why does this program need to auto-load each and everytime the o.s. is loaded? That is a lame thing to do even if it is a freebie. I deleted it asap when I found this out...

"It does the job for free"

January 09, 2007  |  By fortetwo

 |  Version: AutoUnpack 4.4.4

Pros

It's free AND

From the limited, time constrained testing, it appears to do it's job (i.e. unpack archives, in my case .RAR).

Cons

Why did it delete my original archive file?! Why didn't it put the unpacked files in the destination folder I specified?! Minor annoyance; should have looked through the settings / preferences first !)
