BOMArchiveHelper
Authored by: junk666 on Dec 19, '09 04:37:47AM

Just get something, anything for expansion besides bomarchivehelper. It cannot be launched except by double-clicking or option-clicking an archive, and it has no preference file to change the way it works. It doesn't create a folder with the same name as the original archive, but throws the file out with no folder. That means if the original archive were "Annies_file.zip", but the file inside is called "Zider_Zea_trip.jpg", it will go to the end of the alphabet instead of staying with the archive. That's very irritating. I know people are strange to zip a single file, but it adds security in transit, so I can see why they would do it. Use ZipEg or anything but bomarchivehelper. Other utilities will retain the naming method so you don't have to go looking all over the place for the expanded file.
