Extract Files with Drag and Drop

Extract Files with Drag and Drop

To extract files by dragging:

1.  In Smartcrypt, select files and/or folders in an open archive to extract.

2.  Drag the selection to a folder location in Windows Explorer.


  • Smartcrypt ignores settings for extract mode, advanced filter, and path information (made in Extraction options) when you extract files by dragging. Smartcrypt extracts all dragged files and Windows will prompt you to overwrite files that have the same name in target folders.

  • Archived files with alternate data streams will be extracted with the alternate streams intact.
