AutoWinRarZip 1.0.0

Even if you do not find a reason to create compressed files of your own, there is a high chance that you will have to deal with them in one format or another on a fairly frequent basis. A large number of files provided by web sites use compressed formats such as .zip and .rar to reduce the size of downloads as well as the strain on servers. AutoWinRarZip is a simple little tool that helps to make working with such files a little easier.

The first thing you will want to do with any compressed file you download is to decompress it, and this is precisely where AutoWinRarZip can step in to help. The program can configured to monitor a particular folder for new files - such as your Downloads folder - and it will atomatically detect files in a number of different compressed formats.

With support for Rar, Zip, Tar, Gzip and Bzip, most eventualities are catered for and AutoWinRarZip will sit quietly in the system tray until it is needed. Once a compressed file is detected in the monitored folder, it will be automatically decompressed to the folder you have already specified, saving you from having to do this manually.

There is not a great deal to AutoWinRarZip, but what it does, it does well. There are few options to configure, but this is a simple tool. Once you have chosen which folder to monitor for files and indicate which folder should be used to house extracted files, you need simply indicate whether extracted contents should be created in a separate folder and whether the archive should be deleted after extracted. Simple and effective.
