TARFolder v.New

This package provides a Shell Namespace Extension that expands .tar archive files in Windows Explorer. It allows you to browse into a tar file and view the embedded files in Windows Explorer, just like you can browse into a compressed zip file.

TAR archives are often used on UNIX-based systems, and originally stands for Tape Archive. TAR files are usually used for file backup purposes and are uncompressed, so they are used in conjunction with compression software, such as GZIP or BZIP.

This Shell Extension expands the .tar file-extension and allows you to browse into the archive as if it was an actual disk folder. You can copy and paste files and folders in and out of the archive inside Windows Explorer.

You can double-click to open a file and edit it. Save the file back and, if needed, even use the Windows Vista SaveFile dialog to save it with a new name.

When you browse the tar file, you'll get an Extract button in the command bar in the Windows Vista Explorer menu area. Use it to extract an entire folder, or you can simply drag'n'drop files out of the folder.

In addition, the shell extension offers new Property Sheet pages for both the TAR archive itself and also all its files and folders. Use the right-click menu on any folder or sub-folder to quickly extract all files in that folder.

This virtual folder does not support compressed tar files. Files with the extension .tgz and .tbz do not expand. for WindowsVista, 7
