Universal Extractor Portable

Universal Extractor 2 is the most advanced unofficial modification around, aiming at the inclusion of many wanted features, improvement of current ones, ongoing support and a central open-source distribution. UniExtract 2 started as a simple modification disabling the always-on-top status box and ended with the addition of dozens of extractors to expand the range of supported file types. New – and unique amongst the available modifications – features like a scan-only mode to identify unknown file types using multiple scanning applications, the batch mode, or the extraction of audio and video tracks from multimedia files make it stand out against these.

Core improvements:

  • Batch mode
  • Silent mode, not showing any prompts
  • Scan only mode to determine file types without extracting
  • Integrated updater
  • 100+ new supported file types
  • Audio and video extraction for multimedia files
  • Cascading context menu
  • Support for password list for common archives
  • Improved optional status box with progress indicator
  • New detection methods + more detailed output and error messages
  • Support for some extractors not shipping with UniExtract as plugins
  • Resource usage/speed improvements, lots of fixes
  • First start assistant instead of installer
  • Full functionality available in no-install version
  • Auto-using 64 bit versions of extractors if supported by OS

  1. Could you maybe, when the next update comes out for the
    Bioruebe build, change the folder it gets installed in to something better so the files can be updated properly? I've Changed mine to read "UniExtractBioruebePortable" so I could have separate builds installed when I was deciding which I wanted to use more regularly. Then use the appinfo.ini to display "Name=Universal Extractor (Bioruebe) Portable" and display the specific version number "2.0 beta #"

  2. Dangerous File Blocked
    The file you attempted to download was determined to be dangerous. For your protection, MediaFire does not enable distribution of dangerous files.

  3. what did the file size for 4b_Rev2 increase so much? Previous 4b release (CRC 90e7914d) was only 21MB while Rev2 is 88MB.

    1. It has files added to extract even more types of files.
