    When I used a PC there was the WIN RAR program where you could see every file inside a RAR archive, and thus choose which files you wanted to extract. I have RAR Expander and can expand an entire directory just fine, but I would like a little control to be able to choose which files to extract. Is there anything that will let me do this on the Mac?

    For all my rar files, I use Unrarx. A simple google search will find it.

    Please read the question before responding. I DO NOT need just a program to extract the entire archive. I need something where I can view what files are in an archive, and then choose which ones to extract. UnrarX does not have this ability.

    I am not aware of any program that allows a user to view the contents before extracting.

    You could just un-archive the file, view contents, pull what ever you need out and trash the file. It may be easier than searching for a program that may or may not exist.

    I know this didn't help much, but I don't want you to waste your time.

    I have a huge 100 GB Rar archive that I'm downloading and I've been extracting as it downloads so I can take some of the files and transfer them elsewhere to save space. However, now that I'm halfway through, the only way to get the files from the latter part of the RAR archive is to extract everything again. Wish I had Win RAR and a PC so I could do this simple thing.

    Or try Springy. There are apps that will do what you want. YOU can find them.

    Try MRoogle before posting, next time. People that are here trying to help don't NEED you snapping at them as much as you NEED an answer. :mad:
