Unable to unzip archive
#1
I'm using macOS High Sierra and I'm trying to unzip the archive but all it does is create duplicates of itself instead of unzipping... I'm not very familiar with the Mac OS so I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong. Usually I double click an archive to unzip it and it generally works.

I unzip the initial file: mGBA-0.6.3-osx.tar.xz. And I get this file: mGBA-0.6.3-osx.tar.xz.cpgz. I double click that new file and it just creates new copies of the first file: mGBA-0.6.3-osx.tar 2.xz etc. When I try unzipping those new duplicates it just creates new duplicates of itself. Is there something I need to be doing? I feel like it shouldn't be this difficult just to unzip a file. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

So I'm just a big dummy. Apparently the default archive utility is garbage so I installed a free 3rd party and it unzipped it properly.

Yeah, I've actually filed a bug with Apple about this.

Ah ok so I'm not the only one with the issue, cool. Thanks for the reply.
