How many file formats are there out there for compressed archive files? Probably a zillion or so. There may be almost that many tools out there to create or unpack those archive files. Not all unarchivers are created equal, however. What do you do when you run across some obscure file format that isn't supported by your favorite tool? Maybe it's time to give The Unarchiver a try.

The Unarchiver supports all the standard archive formats: .zip, .sit, .tar, .gzip, and all that. It also can deal with some of the more exotic formats, including even some obscure old Amiga formats.

In order to keep this tool as Mac-friendly as possible, the UI is designed to look and feel like the Finder, so you already know how to use it.

The Unarchiver is an OS X application, and requires 10.3.9 or later.
