The Unarchiver
Use The Unarchiver to work with a wide range of compressed file formats

Although increased internet connection speeds mean that web users have to worry far less about the size of the files they download, a large proportion of files are delivered in one compressed format or another. There are a number of different formats to choose from including ZIP and RAR, but many others also exist.

OS X includes built in support for the decompression of a number of popular archive formats, but The Unarchiver extends the supported number of file types much further and adds a number of useful options that make the process of decompressing much easier.

The Unarchiver is able to automatically join together split archive - such as those with .001, .002, .003 extensions - and the number of support formats is staggering. All of the popular formats are supported as well as older and more obscure file types.

Once you have installed the application, all that is left to do is to indicate which files types it should be allowed to handle. The Unarchiver is likely to quickly turn out to be one of those tools you use on an almost daily basis.

Verdict:

A virtually flawless way to extract the contents of a huge number of different compressed file formats.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
