If, like me you spend most of your life rooting around in your downloads folder looking for that tar ball or zip file you recently downloaded then maybe this app if for you?
From the makers of the popular file compression software Stuffit comes the latest in their arsenal of applications. Stuffit Expander 2011 - designed to handle over 30 different file compression types including split and segmented archives.
Not only is it powerful enough to expand just about anything an the click of your mouse, it can also be configured to ‘watch’ a folder such as your downloads folder, and automatically expand a compressed file as soon as it’s finished downloading.
But wait – it doesn’t end there.. It’s also capable of monitoring your email for compressed attachments.. An guess what, it automatically expands those too!
“StuffIt Expander opens files created with WinZip®, 7zX, iShrink, SimplyRAR, Rarify, Rucksack (formerly iArchiver), BetterZip, RarMachine, GUI Tar, CleanArchiver, Springy, TarPit, RAR, Ez7z, Keka, and the compression utilities built into recent versions of Windows and Mac OS X.”
