PentaSFX - Self Extracting Archives

A Self Extracting Archive (a.k.a. SFX File) is a Compressed Archive that can unzip itself without the use of a compression program.

To do this, PentaSFX converts a Compressed Archive (ZIP and ZGB only for now) into an executable file (with an .EXE extension).

Splitting is also available through our SFX (Self Extracting) files. You may split a large archive into sections of the size you prefer. This can be useful when emailing attachments to sites which enforce size limits on incoming email messages. 

Running an SFX file will automatically unzip the files inside:

  • To the folder the SFX file is in,
  • To a user selected folder or
  • To a specific folder designated when the SFX file was created.

PentaSFX also offers access to our CD/DVD burning features, thus allowing you to:

  • create CD's or DVD's containing a newly created SFX file (CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R and DVD+RW formats are supported) .
  • to span large SFX files on CD's  or DVD's.
