This command extracts files from the specified archive in the download folder __Download and leaves the results in the same folder.

An archive file is similar to a compressed tar file. BigFix uses a tool called BFArchive to construct the archive.

This can be useful for copying an entire directory to a computer, which is often required by installers that contain multiple files along with a setup executable.
