How ZIP Extractor Works

  • When you extract, a new folder will be created for the unzipped files with the same name as the ZIP file followed by "(Unzipped Files)".
  • The location of the "(Unzipped Files)" folder will be the same as the ZIP file, as long as you have permission to write to that location. If not, the folder will be placed in your Google Drive "My Drive" root folder.
  • You can view and download individual files inside the ZIP file directly to your computer without sending them over the internet.
  • ZIP Extractor supports opening ZIP files with a password. You will be asked for password to open a password-protected ZIP file. This password is only used on your computer and is never sent over the network.
  • ZIP Extractor also fully supports the RAR file format, including password-protected RAR files.
