Pacifist Mac


Extract files and folders individually from compressed packages with Pacifist, as well as finding lost files and obtaining information about installs

9/10 (1 Votes)

At a given moment, we might be interested in extracting just a single document or folder from a compressed file. It could avoid us wasting time and filling our operating system with junk, but it's a function that isn't present in Mac OS X.

Extract files and folders individually

However, we can make use of Pacifist, a tool that allows us to extract files of folders individually from packages of files compressed in different formats. In particular, we can extract the following:

  • PKG
  • DMG
  • ZIP
  • TAR
  • TAR.GZ
  • TAR.BZ2
  • XAR

No more full installs to replace a single damaged file.

But the individual extraction of files and folders isn't the only useful function available. We can also verify our current installs and find lost or altered files, without forgetting about accessing its kernel that, on the one hand, allows it to find out what has been installed, and on the other, if the installer has been developed by Apple or a third party.

Requirements and additional information:
  • Minimum operating system requirements: Mac OS X 10.8.

We'd love to hear from you. Do you want to give us your opinion?
