Best Answer
Copy

I've never used it personally, but the software "MacDisk" should do this. You can find a trial at '''http://www.macdisk.com/downlen.php3'''. Unfortunatly if you want to copy files over 1MB in size, you'll need to buy it.

How do you stop 7zip from using an intermediate temp directory when decompressing files?

7-Zip doesn't know folder path of drop target. Only Windows Explorer knows exact drop target. And Windows Explorer needs files (drag source) as decompressed files on disk. So 7-Zip extracts files from archive to temp folder and then 7-Zip notifies Windows Explorer about paths of these temp files. Then Windows Explorer copies these files to drop target folder. To avoid temp file usage, you can use Extract command of 7-Zip or drag-and-drop from 7-Zip to 7-Zip.
