From the “Preferences” menu, you can enable the application to keep track of the archive history, set your preferred debug file directory and configure the format-specific options – remove duplicate or temporary files, append missing file extensions and warn before executing files.
The application’s only function is to extract and decompress files from archives or installers, it is unable to create archives, you have to settle for applications like 7-Zip or WinRAR, for archiving purposes.
