Difference between Add and Update?



  • When I use add, I see that it deletes previous occurences of files from the archive before adding new occurences to it. How is this different from the update behavior? Is there documentation beyond the (very) brief manual.txt?

    Great program so far. Doesn’t have the 7-zip problem with multiple occurences of same filename in different directories.



  • My understanding is as follows:

    “Freshen” will only replace existing files if they have changed (e.g. using file date/time). No new files are added.

    “Update” will add new files to the archive but only replace existing files if they have changed (e.g. using file date/time).

    “Add” will add new files to the archive but will also replace existing files whether they have changed (e.g. using file date/time) or not.

    So, assuming some existing files have NOT changed, Update is going to be quicker than Add as some files are not “processed”.

    However, I have not tested this - so confirmation would be nice :rolleyes:



  • This was my suspicion as well, but couldn’t confirm. So, seconding the motion on confirmation. Any thoughts out there?

    Thanks for the reply.



  • Just checked Add vs Update (ZIP format).
    It appears my understanding was correct 😃



  • and thanks.
