Written from scratch in C# and the .NET framework with new and advanced features such as processing files inside sub directories, processing files and directories with Unicode names, support for Unicode passwords, better logging and statistics facilities, revamped GUI , and optimizations that offer much faster execution.
Handles file names in Unicode
Name your files using all the characters the Unicode standard allows. So file names can be written in Hindu, Japanese, English, Russian, Greek etc or even mix them! Most extraction utilities handle only ANSI characters and break when trying to handle Unicode, but UER does not!
Handles paths/directories in Unicode
Name your directories using all the characters the Unicode standard allows. So directory names can be written in Hindu, Japanese, English, Russian, Greek etc or even mix them! Most extraction utilities handle only ANSI characters and break when trying to handle Unicode, but UER does not!
Handles archive passwords in Unicode
Passwords in Unicode means that you are not constrained by regional settings anymore. For example in a Windows installation with UK regional settings you can use passwords in Japanese or Hindu, as long as the installation is correctly set up to support those languages too. Also, passwords can now even contain symbols like ★ or ♣
Statistics - Job ID
The Job ID relates the running Job to the Log files, so you can easily find what the Job did
When the Job completes , a summary of what the Job did is displayed on screen, for example how many archives were extracted, how many failed, how many cached, etc
Detailed log files keep a detailed record of what the Job did in the files "success.txt, deleted.txt, failed.txt, cached.txt"
Reading files in sub-directories
Not only does the application process files in sub-directories of any depth, it also replicates their structure inside the extraction directory thus keeping your files organized and easily identified
The application works in batch mode and therefore for speeding up file processing and not consuming CPU cycles unecessarily, upon successfull extraction of a multipart's archive's first part, UER consumes and caches the rest of the archive's parts so that when later encountered on as the current directory is getting processed, they do not needlessly get processed again. This leads to massive speed gains
Note: UER is Ad-supported, therefore during its installation you will be offered and given the choice to install third party applications alongside it. These offers are purely optional and can be opted out thus no third party applications get installed. The advertised applications are not spyware or malware but applications that might prove usefull
