    The Unarchiver for .rar, .zip, .....

    But UnrarX is better for password protected .rar files.


    And swiftaw, I like your avatar, even though not a lot of people seem to take that route, if we could know of it of course.

    UnRarX suits my needs for that sort of thing... but I also believe that Stuffit Expander does it to..

    I have a few apps for Archiving and whatnot, so just look at the pic..

    The Unarchiver, UnRarX.

    Stuffit Expander is the best, since it handles passwords perfectly.

    Another vote for UnRarX. It also does par2 checking/correction.

    RAR Expander is the ONLY app I've found that handles password protected files properly!
