How to extract selected files from archive


Selective extraction from rar tar zip files

Selectively extract files from 7Z RAR TAR ZIP ZIPX archives

PeaZip supports selective extraction from archives, implementing all functions to browse, search, and select only the content the user intends to extract, whithout the need of de-compressing the entire archive - that will require more time and temporary storage space - when only a part of the content is desired to be retrived.
To selectively extract intended data from a supported archive:

select content to be unzipped

Open a supported archive format within PeaZip
  • double click the archive the intended data is stored in, if the file extension is associated with the PeaZip - as it is set by default from the Windows installer for most of mainstream formats (7Z, ACE, RAR, TAR, ZIP, ZIPX...)
  • alternatively rightclick the file and select "Open as archive" from PeaZip's context menu group: the software can open many not explicitly supported container formats which are, essentially, variations of structures of other archive formats - mostly of ZIP standard which is under public domain.

To extract files & folders from spanned (split) archives it is needed to save all the parts (i.e. .001, .002, etc extension) in the same folder, and to open the first part, the one usually having extension .001, .R01, Z01...

select and extract from rar zip archive

Select files and folders in PeaZip's archive explorer
  • Browse, search and filter archive:

    • archive content can be normally browsed as the filesystem, with archive structure tree shown on the left in navigation side panel, or can be displayed in flat mode (showing all content) pressing F6
    • archive content can be searched, with or without recursivity in subfolders, clicking on magnifying icon on the right of address bar or pressing F3
    • archive content can be filtered typing in the address bar (simple match to string being entered)
    • Tools > Use advanced filters (Shift+Ctlr+F9) can apply multiple inclusion and exclusion filters to content to be displayed
  • Select archive content:

    • archive content can be normally selected and de-selected as the filesystem content (single or multiple selection with Shift and Ctrl modifiers), Ctrl+A select all displayed items
    • "Select..." from search context menu (magnifier icon on the right of address bar) allows advanced selection features: by date, by size, by same initial, by same extension, etc.

extract selected files from rar zip archive

Extract selected objects from the archive

  • Click on "Extract" button on application's tool bar to send selected object(s) to main extraction interface; in application's context menu "Extract" group you can chose to extract all, selected or displayed objects
    • once in main extraction interface you can set output path, enter password to decrypt password-protected archives (usually 7z, ace, pea, rar, zip, and zipx types), naming policy (skip, overwrite or rename existing files) and other options, like extraction in new folder or delete archive after extraction - of course, under normal circumstances, the option of deleting original archive after a partial extraction should not be used.
  • Drag and drop single or multiple selected items from the application to the system to bypass main extraction interface, PeaZip implement custom drag & drop routine that avoids to create a temporary copy on system disk, speeding up to 50% extraction operations to external units like other partitions, removable units, usb keys, network disks...
    • password, if needed for encrypted archives, can be set from padlock extract encrypted zip rar content on the bottom right of file/archive browser window.
