How to extract one or more archives

To extract a single or multiple archives at once, even of various types:
start extraction from the system's file explorer
  • Select one or more archive files and use context menu entry "Extract..." to display full extraction screen GUI, which allows to set output path, password, and other options explained below, for the archive or the group of archives

  • Select one or more archives and use context menu entry Extract here or Extract here (to new folder) for directly extract archive(s) with no further confirmation

start extraction from PeaZip main application
  • Selecting an archive, or a group of archives, Extract button shows full featured archive extraction screen providing access to all options (password, set output path, open output path after extraction, keep or delete original archives, etc)

  • On the right of Extract button, the dropdown context menu  shows Extract all to... (asks only for output path), Extract here, and direct extraction to relevant folders - desktop, documents, favorites...

Archive extraction options

In the top part of the application window, PeaZip provides a file explorer control showing the list of input archive files queued to be unpacked (extraction layout): rightclick on it for context menu to further edit the list, and for showing other input-related options.
To extract spanned (split) archives it is needed to save all the parts (usually .001, .002, etc) in the same directory, and to send the first part to extraction (usually with extension .001, .R01, Z01...).

Input area context menu features entries to add files & folders to extraction list, drag to application from search results, open bookmarked/recently visited paths, add bookmarked/recently used files, load and save layout, and more...
Same menu is replicated clickingon the hamburger icon in the top right corner of the application's window.

Above input layout area, below application's main menu, it is featured the extraction tab bar.
Advanced tab provides more features - as attempt extraction of non-archive extensions, extract to relative, absolute or full paths (including drive letter).
Console and Schedule tabs can fine tune task definition beyond GUI capabilities, and save / schedule the task in the form of command line script, i.e. for syntax learning purpose, or for later use as batch script.

In the bottom area of the form is featured Output group, that allows to set extraction directory; on the left of the address box, the arrow button popup a navigation menu similar to the one featured in file manager, to speed up the selection of most frequently used paths.
On the right of Output field it is featured Enter password / keyfile button to set the decryption password, if needed for extraction of encrypted archives.

Dropdown option menus features output options for 7z/p7zip backend, that is used to support most common file formats
  • Policy for handling naming conflicts
    • Skip existing files assure files on disk will not be affected, conflicting objects will not be extracted from the archive (default)
    • Auto rename extracted files assign a new unique name to objects being extracted from the archive each time a naming conflict is encountered; that policy assures that pre-existing objects on disk will keep their original names
    • Auto rename existing files extracted objects get the desired name, conflicting pre-existing objects are renamed with a new unique name
    • Overwrite existing files make all conflicting pre-existing objects overwritten by extracted objects
    • Ask before overwriting (in console): no defined policy, the console will be shown alongside graphic process launcher allowing the user to decide interactively if overwriting or skipping files
  • Actions performed by the extraction routine: "Extract", default, extracts archived objects with paths, replicating the directory structure of the input data, "Extract (without path)" decompress files to a flat structure, and “List” or "Test".
Checkboxes can set following options:
  • Delete archives after extraction removes original archives after extraction proces, if checked shows deletion options: move to recycle bin, quick delete (files are deleted without being moved to recycle bin), zero delete (data overwritten by 0s), secure delete (multi-pass overwriting of data)
  • Extract in new folder triggers extraction to a fresh new folder, avoiding possible naming conflicts
  • Extract to original path perform extraction of each archive in its original input path
  • Open output path when task completes automatically open the output directory where the archive was extracted to
  • Remove redundant directory on extraction in new folder moves extracted content up one folder if unnecessary level of nesting is detected
The status bar contains, on the left, information of free space on current output disk, and input size, and on the right OK and Cancel buttons.
Cancelling an operation also means discarding changes in option switches, while confirming with OK saves changes.
