Great app

Great, but it'd be perfect if I could create a directory to extract files to. Right now it only automatically creates a directory if I extract all. Edit: What's with the Old/New garbage? Seriously annoying.

Just started using and I found it easy to figure out and it extracts files that the other extractor I tried wouldn't.

Does Not Restore original file/date stamps

This app does not restore original file/date stamps of the file after it was unpacked and it also leaves the unzipped files as blocked as if it was downloaded from another computer due to the alternate NTFS data stream and I need to unblock every unzipped files. Uninstalled this app right away.

I needed this for multiple things to work Skyrim. Such as SKSE. It is a very useful app for extracting files.

This is the fastest Windows RT-compatible ZIP program I tried and supports the most formats like 7z. It has a good, clean UI and is easy to use - a natural fit with proper modern apps.

Lots of trouble creating archives.

When trying to add files to a new archive I see lots of inexplicably empty directories. Some files and folders are visible, others are not. This is a dealbreaker. As a wishlist, I would also love it if this app worked with the Share charm.

Hurray! It finally supports all formats

Congrats! Now 8 Zip becomes a really brilliant piece of software for Windows 8. It reads RAR! And can compress in 7z! That's all I actually need. Would like to have an option to adjust compression settings. Hope your application will evolve further P.S. Christmas theme is awesome!
