If archives that contain many files are extracted to a directory that resides on a volume other than the volume that contains the system's or user's temp directory, copying the files to their final destination becomes the performance bottleneck for the whole extraction process. If there were an option to create temporary directories within the destination directory, speedups of factor 10 or more could easily be achieved in many cases.
