It will extract a long list of other formats, among them RAR, CAB, ISO, ARJ, RPM, VHD, VMDK etc. Even more formats are supported through third-party plugins. Supports many world languages.

Additionally, to use alternative toolbar and file icons, 7-Zip Theme Manager is available.

7-Zip Portable is a wrapper from PortableApps.com, auto-detecting 32 or 64-bit automatically. Alternatively, X-7zip is also available.

There is also a 7-Zip standalone console version.

When you click the 'More' link it goes to a 404.

FireRabbit on 2021-10-08 14:51

I didn't realize Bandizip was here or I'd have commented sooner. I LOVE Bandizip it's the only archive program that handles Zpaq files well. When you have a big zpaq update you can Ctrl+F in the archive and filter and search the entire backup history of the Zpaq.

TL/DL
Best GUI for Zpaq and Zpaq is magic.

UltraSearch Free v3.4 Updated

Andrew Lee on 15 Nov 2022
  • 55MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Nov 2022
  • Suggested by guinness

UltraSearch Free is a fast and feature-rich search tool, building a searchable listing of drive content in seconds. File name searches narrow as they are typed and support wildcards such as "*.txt". Additional information like file size and last change date are present, along with access to Explorer's own context menu.

The program also includes a slower, non-indexing file content search that will look inside files, including a variety of Office (DOCX, PDF, PST, ODT) and compressed files (ZIP, 7Z, RAR). It is recommended that you provide a small set of files to check e.g. ext:DOCX content:portable to look for the word "portable" in MS Word files.

Other search options include AND / OR operations, regular expressions, a custom exclude filter for path, files, parent folders, etc., and results can be exported to text and CSV. Commercial version available with more features.

I've been using this program daily for the past month and I'm really impressed. I do find that Everything does some fragmented searches better, but I'm slowly warming up to the program. I'll be easily pushed over if they add some kind of content index (for more immediate search results of file internals).

It's the best image viewer I've ever used. Awesome UI and hotkeys, fast; everything I wanted in an image viewer. Near perfect.

I tested Honeyview with a "very large" graphic file" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Garden_of_Earthly_Delights#/media/File:The_Garden_of_earthly_delights.jpg ), 175Mb.
I was very pleased to see that Honeyview could display the file, but the "zoom" function failed.

I've been using this frequently as a replacement for the original Universal Extractor and it's so far saved me a lot of time and energy.

SleepingWolf on 2020-02-03 18:39

The download found on the github site is currently missing an .exe (or any other executable) file.

thepiney on 2020-02-04 14:27

I'm guessing you downloaded the source code zip file. If you click on the download link and go to the bottom of RC2 area, just above 2.0.0 RC1 you'll see "Assets", click on that and then the top download "UniExtractRC2.zip".
