I suggest you ...

add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

For developers/database admins, sometimes backups are taken in different
formats and compression is done in different formats.

when compressed files other than ZIP file is uploaded for websites data
files, there is no way to uncompress them via PLESK, one has to go to SSH
and then extract to use it.

So compressing files/folders to multiple formats and then extraction from
multiple compressed formats will allow more ease of use for users where
they deal with no. of formats!

        any updates on this? seems like this should have been done long ago. .tar.gz, .tar are essential

        as soon as posible..for me it is not problem to upload file and than extract it through CLI ...but end users don't have SSH access mostly...I mean this is something you should include few years ago

        Hi Ionut, nice to see you here. We definitely agree that it would have been awesome if all those suggestions were already implemented. But they cannot be done all at once, so we have to pick some of them over another. For that reason we established public voting system - to help us to set priorities right. This proposal is supported by 21 person, while some others are supported by 100s. That would explain why something else might have been delivered earlier.

        And still high chances to see this improvement in the next release

        This feature should have been available already, we're in 2016 and the File Manager lacks basic functions! amazing...

        Currently the extraction feature available in the Plesk File manager support .zip files only. In *nix environments, .tar .targ.gz and .tgz are common formats too.
