Can you include .3MF to the list of re-compressible formats? Its structure is similar to MS Office 2007 documents and Open Document Format. It is a ZIP Deflate archive with XML data and some JPG, and/or PNG pictures inside. Otherwise, if I try to compress .3MF it bearly makes it smaller unless I recompress .3MF to the Store setting then it makes it a lot smaller.
Wish they all would move to 7zip ZSTD in the first place so that the optimized file size with FileOptimizer would be 50% of the ZIP Deflate version. And there would be no extra compression needed :)
I noticed that the option to add the optimize archive function to the context menu is missing on Windows 10.
Opening each archive with the interface in order to click it becomes tedious with many files.
Same for others functions like Remove Archive Encryption
Small issue with shell extensions
I do 99% of my archive work via the shell extensions, be it adding or subtracting. One of the most common ones I use is the Extract To ___ where it creates a directory with the name of the archive and unzips to it. I just find the fact that PA trys to shove in the full path really annoying and unnecessary. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t see how this is useful…99% of paths are going to be too long to be read there and are just trunkated, and at that point they’re just clutter. Even just using one’s desktop makes it rather ugly. Furthermore I don’t see a situation where this could be useful even if you could read it, I mean it’s a shell extension so you’re already looking right at the folder in explorer. I think it’d be much cleaner and simpler to simply give the new folder name and skip the full path (“Extract To folder_name”).
Do you mean in the context menu itself? As in http://www.powerarchiver.com/forums/showthread.php?t=485
Right click an archive on the desktop now:
“Extract to C:\Doc…\Adm…\Des…\Fol…”
is useless clutter, and could much more simply be
“Extract to [filename]”
where [filename] is the name of the archive sans-extension.
