We will unpack BSAs in the following situations:

  • The BSA was packed in the Classic Skyrim Creation Kit and will crash the game if we attempt to load it.
  • The BSA is connected to an empty plugin and we will use the loose files to save a plugin slot.


Through Mod Organizer 2

  • In MO2’s right pane, switch to the Archives tab (picture).
  • Right-click the BSA you want to extract and select Extract (picture).
  • Point it at the folder of the mod to which the BSA belongs (picture).
  • Finally delete the BSA from the mod folder.

With Bethesda Archive Extractor

Coming soon-ish.
