It does the job… battling unzipping a 4.5GB file for hours until i installed this app and it did the trick.

Good app but it is complete nagware

Surprised that no one has mentioned this, but for some reason, my UnrarX program no longer works. It was great and completely nag free. This Dr. Unarchiver also works the same pretty much, but upon launching it prompts me to look at some other programs and almost every single file I open up in one archive, the program nags me about some other programs. Make free programs free of nags. It is quite simple. If there was a $3 option to get rid of these nags, I will consider it.

Excellent App

Fast and effective way to open zip files. Great product.

Not as good as The Unarchiver

I’m not sure why this app is rated higher than The Unarchiver, but The Unarchiver is a lot easier to use. This app comes with ads as soon as you open the app and it can’t even un-rar the file under the Downloads folder, it asks for permission but the “Allow” button is grayed out. I removed it and downloaded The Unarchiver and I can hit the ground running immediately!

Dr. Unarchiver

This app works flawlessly for me. Highly recommended

Perfect way to open Rar

I just want to say that this app delivers everything it promises and does it perfectly. Thank you developers for such a great app!!! I’d give it 6 stars if I could

super fast and easy to use

I was shocked to see that it didnt even take 5secs for a file to fully upload. Super fast and super easy to use and navigate

Great tool

Really enjoy the ability to examine the contents of the zip file before extracting the content.

very Good

Great App

really fast and helpful

I needed a quick solution to open RAR files and found this program. I could install it easily and open RAR files without any problem, on my Macbook. Thanks))


Dr Unarchiver popped up an ad out of nowhere. I’ve deleted it and emptied the trash.

Efficient and Easy

Does exactly what it says it does! Highly recommend!

方便 简单 快捷 免费

非常方便的一款软件 解压速度很快 不会让人感到不好用

Simple Install

Used it to extract some very large files (2Gigs +) simple to install and very easy to use. Highly recommended.

Excelente Descompresor Rar

Excelente para visualizar y descomprimir cualquier archivo .rar facil y rápido, sin mencionar que es completamente Gratis.

Like Dr.Cleaner

it’s obviously just as good as Dr. Cleaner (wich i also have), it helps tremendously, praise for all the wonderfull apps.


My last zip program had great reviews but whatever i downloaded would give me the error ‘can’t open this’ I thought it was the site untll I downloaded a file for work and it had the same issue. Turns out the zip program was breaking the exacutable file. This program was a life saver it works and theres no bloat. I LOVE it thank you so much for providing it.

Works Great

Needed to access a .RAR file, I was able to quickly open and extract the documents I needed.

Exciting when you get what you need!

Great app… Easy to use, does exactly what i need. Thanks.

Stupidly easy

I didn’t expect this to work so effortlessly- what a happy surprise. I installed the app, and was almost instantly able to open the zip files. No snags, no frustration walking through 8 steps. Easy peasy. Thanks!


Just perfect for .rar

Saved me

Had a corrupted file. Tried several solutions. None worked until I tried Dr. Unarchiver. Saved me from a lot of problems.


it really works

It’s Great

I took a chance thinking that it’s some sort of virus or something, but it actually really helped a lot with things I install.

Simple to use

I needed to get to a file and and the Dr. gave me a free visit at no charge! Simple to use and fast!

Es muy útil pero podria mejorar

La aplicación es muy útil considerando la limitante que hay de aplicaciones gratuitas. Funciona muy bien, pero podría mejorar si le agregan la opción de descompresión desde el mismo archivo. Gracias por su dedicación al desarrollo de la aplicación, es muy util.

Great App for RAR files

Needed a quick and simple App for opening big RAR files. This downloaded quickly and works flawlessly!! Thank you

quick and easy

For the occasional .rar or other compressed file format surprise delivery from one of my vendors that I need to turn around lightening fast, and for which I can afford no time or patience to mess around with app-this-and-that, this tool did the trick and continues to.

Works Great

Works great. What else can I say? oh, yah . . . . THANKS VERY MUCH. Old Guy 71 years old with a 2009 MacBook -High Sierra

Did everything I needed

Dr. Unarchiver accomplished everything I expected and needed. Excellent app! I highly recommend.

Great solution

Free, easy to use, and quickly solved my problem. Woohoo!

Dr. Unarchiver

The app does exactly what it says it will do with speed and precision. Don’t like the adware.

I like it!

Fast, trustful and easy

I try and waste my time trying most of the apps and i finally found it. i love it.

Couldn’t get a file to open with a few other programs. This one worked great.


I like it so far, thanks!

Ez and clean

Very clean interface with easy operations needed. Commend!

Good app

Very convinent!

The Doctor was able to save the patient!

I was skeptical, but took a chance on this app, I'm happy I did. It was able to extract a zip for a program that wouldn't otherwise run.

Thanks Dr U

I could not open a zip file with the default tool. Not for long - Dr U to the rescue. I was amazed at how fast it unarchived my files. Great product!

Que tenga la opción de comprimir

Que la aplicación tenga la opción de comprimir archivos en varios formatos (rar, 7z, zip, etc.). Y si es que lo tienen, que sea más visible. Muchas gracias

Nice and Easy to use

Pretty UI, highly functional, why not?

Simple and Easy to use!

This free decompressing app has achieved everything beyond my expectations. It is super easy to use and it looks absolutely fabulous. I would definately recommend this to anyone who is looking for a RAR & Zip opener!


its so easy…. AND FREE!!! you can even turn on notifications so if you download a file that might need extracting it will ask you if you want to? and if you do just click yes and if not you dont have to!!!! BEST APP !

Excellent App!

This app did exactly what I needed. Within minutes of downloading it, completely free, I was opening my necessary files. It works smoothly and does exactly what is promised. Although I have only just started using Dr. Unarchiver, I am certain that I will be using it on a regular basis from now on. Thank you for creating such a great tool for us Mac users. I will definitely recommend it to others!

Works as intended.

We all need an app like this to extract files. This one had a great rating and works as intended. Thanks! :)
