    I have some files to extract that are in password protected archives (all the same password)

    so I have created a file in C:\password.txt containing just the password, but I still have Missing Password as the status for all archives.
    I made something wrong or is a bug ?
    Best regards

    Hello Albert.

    In the password file, you need to specify witch file the password is for. A part of the filename is enough.

    Example: Password for myPicturesThisMonth.rar with password pictures

    ok, so a nice feature will be to be able to specify a password that can work with all file of with all file files, something like this:
    * pictures

    Or another approche will be to specify only the password in the password.txt file and the program will try to open the archive using all password one at the time….

    Best regards

    If you update to version V2.0 you will get that functionality 😉

    Can you explain how can we enter the passwords into the password.txt file so the program can try all the passwords to unrar protected file? Must it be in C:/ ?

    You just type it.

    If the password is: kownn

    you open the password.txt an type in kownn and close the file. Voila :) No, you can create the password.txt file in the monitored folder, or you can use the global one. The global one can be relocated in settings.

    Is there a way to have it unpack into sub folders?

    Here’s what I mean:

    c:/Scanned Directory
    |_ Downloaded Folder
    |_ ZIP RAR File

    If set to Unpack by subfolder to the “Scanned Directory” folder the files would look like this after an unpack (with deletion of rar files after unpacking checked):

    c:/Scanned Directory
    |_ Downloaded Folder
    |_ Unpacked File 1, Unpacked File 2, Unpacked File 3,…

    Is there a way to do this so that all of the unpacked files don’t end up dumped into a single folder and all mixed up?

    Thanks for developing this, a really nice app.

    You can use the unpack subtree structure. But it doesn’t solve the problem where the files is not mapped in the rar files.

    I’ll look into make a option to create a folder for each unpacked file

    Segmented .rars don’t seem to work. It tries to unzip .r00 instead of .rar and ends up calculating a size 10x greater than the actual contents. The only program I found that does what I need is autoextract 3, and that requires payment after 2 weeks.

    Hi im having a problem, it doesnt seem to extract multi arcives for me like .rar .01 .02 when it comes to that file for a movie for example it trys to extract movie.01 and it just says “skipped” nothing else. Any reason why it does this and how to fix it? It seems to do it for almost anything like tv shows or games.

    Love the program, thanks!

    Unpack Monitor seems to have all the features I want, but unfortunately, I cannot add folders!
    When i start it up, I click “add folder.” It brings up a dialog box and I put in a source and destination folder, select a few options. I do not see an “OK” button, the only options are minimize, maximize, and close window. I tried all of them, and none of them seem to add the folder. In the general settings menu, clicking x makes the settings stick. I tried this on two different folders. I am running windows 7 64-bit on both computers.

    Thanks. I hope we can resolve this, because this seems like a killer application. I have spent hours trying to find something that had the exact features I needed.

    Hello. Tanks for your kind words. In one of the reviews of Unpack monitor i stumpled apon this: Some Windows users may need to run the program with elevated privileges. If they do not, they won’t see the monitored directories in the program interface.

    Have you tried running the application with Administrator privileges?

    Hi, Thanks for your quick reply. I did not run it as administrator…. but I did restart the program, and now it seems to allow me to add the directories, but the monitoring is not working correctly.
    For example
    1) Set it to monitor directory c:\foo, with sub folder unpacking, monitor at one minute intervals
    2) Ensure that monitor status says “running”
    3) Next scan time is 8:01 (current time is 8:00)
    4) copy a sub folder in with a spanned rar archive (c:\foo\bar\baz.r*, yes I am a software developer…)
    5) Time is now 8:01, the files do not get unpacked. Time is now 8:02, files do not get unpacked….
    6) If i click stop unpacking then start unpacking, it picks up the files and works…. It also works if I add the watch folder when there are rar files in there….

    I will try with elevated privileges tonight when I get home, and see if this helps, though this sounds like a different problem.

    If running it as administrator works, I will let you know. If not, I would be happy to help you in any way possible.
