Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

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.
