Hi all, I'm new to Macs and just started using a old MacBook Pro 3,2. I'm an avid Windows user and just looking to try something different. I'm looking for some recommendations on a compression app that uncompresses zip/rar/etc files. I've tried a few already like StuffIt and Unarchiver. For the life of me, I could not figure out how to find/change the option where it uncompresses the archive in a specified folder WITHOUT creating a new folder. For Unarchiver, the option is already set at "extract archives to: Same folder as the archive" which is fine but it creates a new folder named after the archive filename. I do not want that. All I want is for it to uncompress the archive to without creating a new folder.

Any recommendations on an Mac app that'll work? I am currently on OSX Lion all updated.

TIA!

It's not free, but I like BetterZip. If you're used to WinZip or WinRAR, you'll feel right at home.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
