    Have a bunch of archives in .zip format from when storage was expensive. Is there a utility to unzip these in batch, so I need not do one-by-one?

    WinRar/WinZip should be able to accomplish this by highlighting them from the bottom of the list and right clicking on the top
    of your list, or vice versa. Go to properties>>Extract>>"No to All"

    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.

    The command line version of 7-Zip (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sevenzip/7za465.zip or http://sourceforge.net/projects/seve...3.zip/download for the latest bèta version) can be very useful for batch actions, from a command prompt or a batch file. It might take some time to figure out the required parameters, though.

    7-Zip is free for both personal and commercial use.
