Add-In: OnTheFlyUnzipper – Automatic Unzipper

Imagine this scenario. You are at a friend’s house and you want to upload 25 files from his PC to your WHS using the upload feature from the Shared Folders tab within the web interface. Now if you have tried this you will know that it takes forever, but no longer.

The latest news from the German Ms Homeserver Blog is that using OnTheFlyUnzipper will allow you to add hundreds of files in a ZIP or RAR archive, upload this file to your Windows Home Server and the add-in will then automatically uncompress the files. Saving you time, bandwidth and of course megabytes within your upload.

Other options or functions include:

  • unzip only archives with a special prefix in the filename (if you don’t want to unzip every archive)
  • delete the archive after uncompressing
  • create a folder for the contents of the archive
  • select the shares that should be monitored for archives
  • runs as a service

Well done to developer Alex (AliG) for this add-in and apart from the download a PDF User guide is also available.
