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
How about custom shell extensions that can zip and rename to something else. For instance gmail doesn’t support zip attachments with exe’s in them. I would love to be able to specify a shell extensions to zip but name the file .changetozip instead of zip etc.
It looked like something might be there in the options, i tried adding a new profile, but you can’t specify the extensions to use, independent of the compression type. And i couldn’t get it to show up on the shell menus in the options as well.
I can go about this other ways but thought it might be a useful feature for emailing compressed archives using gmail and other virus scanning web mails.
Renaming may not work if they check the file contents as well as the extension. Why not use a different compression type (e.g. Blakhole [bh]) or maybe a password (PAE file)?
That’s part of the reason their security is kind of ridiculous is because it doesn’t scan any files that it doesn’t recognize the extension. I think 7z and rar are not scanned.
Could this change in the future yes.
But I choose zip because most people have some kind of utility to extract this. Where encryption or other format might not be as well adopted. We use gmail hosting for a couple of domains that we have to send things out from.
As well as my personal email.
