Viewing the contents of your .wpress file with Traktor

Traktor is a simple experimental web browser tool that can be found here:

With a simple drag-and-drop, you can view the contents of a.wpress file in the Traktor Tool. Navigate to and click the Traktor link in the website’s footer.

The following link will take you to Traktor’s homepage:

Drag and drop your file into the indicated grey area.

A progress bar will appear while the file is loading.

Once the file has been read, you will see a button that allows you to restart the process. Click the folder icon to expand the file structure and view your backup’s contents:

The list will show the folder tree within the backup, and the folder icons are also clickable, allowing you to explore further:

Detecting a corrupted archive

Traktor is also an excellent tool for determining whether or not there is corruption of your backup. If the file will not load to display the file structure and contents, or if you get a result of % NaN, there is most likely corruption of your backup.

If your file does not load and you want to try again, simply refresh the page and start over.

    How do we extract this archive on a pc?
    We’re dealing with a HUGE file (2.5gb) – we need to extract just the images from it.

    Can Traktor, or something else, be used to pack an unpacked .wpress back up again after making some changes? I don’t have the original site, other than a .wpress file I made of it a couple of years ago. And when I last tried to upload it with the All-in-One Migration tool the host said there were compromised files in the site. I think I know what they are and would like to remove them from the archive before trying again.

      2. Install All-in-One WP Migration plugin
      3. Import your file
      4. Make changes
      5. Export the site
      6. Import the file from step 5 to your hosting
