BetterZip lets you quickly inspect archives without first extracting their contents.
Extract Only Files You Really Need: If you only need a few files or folders from a larger archive, you don’t have to extract the whole thing. Simply drag the files you need from the BetterZip window to any Finder window or the desktop.
Open Archives Without Extracting: Not only can BetterZip open archives without first extracting them but you can also search for a file using the iTunes-like interface. BetterZip can open and extract archives with the most common formats: ZIP, SIT, TAR, XAR, XZ, GZip, BZip2, RAR, 7-Zip, CPIO, ARJ, LZH/LHA, JAR, WAR, CAB, ISO, CHM, RPM, DEB, NSIS, BIN, HQX, DMG, EPUB, and Winmail.dat.
Create Archives: Simply drag files and folders from your hard drives, disks, or network places into your new zip file. You no longer have to copy all the files into a temporary folder first. The supported formats are ZIP, TAR, GZip and BZip2 compressed TAR, XAR, 7-ZIP, and RAR (using the external RAR commandline tool). Large archives can also be split.
Protect Your Data: BetterZip can protect your data with a password and create AES-256 encrypted archives. 7-zip and rar archives can also be protected.
Update Archives: Add new or updated files to existing archives. Remove any file or folder from an archive, or even move files around inside the archive as if it were a normal folder.
Make Archives Compatible: Strip Mac-specific files and resource forks from archives for best compatibility with systems like Windows or Linux.
Fixed a possible crash when opening an archive through the Favorites sidebar and extracting it with a preset that moves the archive after the extraction
Fixed a possible crash when extracting or compressing an archive through the queue with the “show save panel” option set in the used preset
In some places in the user interface BetterZip 3 was referenced instead of BetterZip 4
“Reveal Service Folder” in Preferences > Presets didn’t work correctly
Extracting tar archives with multiple root items with the queue didn’t create an extra folder when not set to “Always”
BetterZip services and the BetterZip button in Finder didn’t automatically show the queue window when compressing or extracting files
“Opening an archive from Finder immediately extracts it” affected the compression, not only the extraction when dropping files on dock icon
The Dropzone action could crash Dropzone after completion
Files were sorted in reverse order when applying a filter in the favorites sidebar
Extracting the BetterZip download package with macOS 10.10 built-in Archive Utility or Safari could lead to BetterZip being “damaged”
When adding multiple parts of a multi-volume archive to the queue through the Finder button, they would all be queued instead of the first part only
When renaming a file or folder in an archive, BetterZip now only selects the name without the file extension, just like Finder
