Description Dotan Cohen 2012-07-24 16:24:12 UTC
When selecting and opening all the files of a multi-file archive, Ark currently asks to overwrite the extracted file one time for each part of the multifile archive.

It would be simple to say "then don't select all the files of a multifile archive", but that presents two issues:
1) Those unfamiliar with Ark may not know that they do not need to select all the files.
2) When there are multiple multifile archives in a directory, the user will have to meticulously select only one file from each archive. This is tedious, it is much simpler to select all the files in the directory and to select Extract Archive Here on the whole lot.
