All self-proclaimed computer specialists need to know how to take a PC apart and study it carefully. While this rule generally applies to the hardware part of a computer, it’s also useful to learn how to extract files and export their components. MultiExtractor is such an application, created to thoroughly analyze files.
This tool allows users to ‘look’ into files and folders, explore and extract hidden elements, such as images, audio, video, icons, and textures, all from within a minimalistic and easy-to-use interface.
First the source needs to be selected, either a file or a folder, it gets extracted, then the tool quickly analyzes the source and displays the results.
Considering MultiExtractor recognizes a wide range of formats, users can also choose the type of files that should be processed, thus reducing the time it takes to complete an extraction. They can even filter the size of the image that need to be dealt with, depending on their preferences.
There are plenty of settings that can be configured to filter searches, such as recurse subfolders or overwrite files.
Moreover, the software uses the CPU memory to a minimum, therefore it does not affect its overall performance.
What can be done with this software? Users can break files apart and use a particular piece to specific purposes. The software can also be used as a method for learning what is hidden within various applications. Other than that, it can also be a fun tool, handy for poking around files on one’s PC.
The unregistered version does not allow users to save the extracted files, so a license is needed to export each item to another location and use it properly.
MultiExtractor allows users to extract different kinds of multimedia files, including images, icons and textures from DLL or EXE files.
MultiExtractor is different from other extractors because it can unpack archives (ZIP, RAR, CAB+InstallShield Cabinets, JAR, CHM) and extract data from them.
- Extraction of resources from MSI installers
- Extraction of more than one format at only one scan session
- Mapping mode (saves a lot of time for extract data)
- Anti circular extraction
