Hmmmm... came here for the same reason... un-arcing some old files, which WinZip, PKzip, PKxarc, and others can't handle. They were made with some version of Xtree, probably XTGold 2.55. Now the problem.

WinZip et al. give me a "Bad Header" error on /all/ the files. OK, it's some proprietary .arc. Lets try Ztree. ALT-F5 opens the .arc as if it were a View Hex, not the tree structure expected. Hmmm... load up an old machine with MSDOS 6.22 and XTGold 2.55, no problem. Except that ALT-F5 opens the .arc as above... no tree, no chance to extract... Also, View, Edit, Help, and probably other stuff error me this > Missing Overlay. Grrrrrrrr.

I'm off to try an old version of pkxarc... but have my doubts at this point.
