This is the best batch extractor there is. That being said, it's very buggy and crashes a lot for me (always has even after major releases). Too bad because I always hesitate to recommend it. If it never crashed, and actually sorted directories alphabetically (how is this not possible?), I would love it even more.

Oh well, the 40% of the time it works it sure saves me a lot of time, and it's free... So I can't really complain.
