Tests on what archive format to use



  • it would be nice to have a rough list of tests to tell us what archive format to use as on image files music etc. it would help the novice user.



  • in most cases you should use 7ZIp for high compression ratio

    if you want to distribute something you should use ZIP for compatibility reasons



  • @klumy:

    … if you want to distribute something you should use ZIP for compatibility reasons

    • if you want to distribute something it is better to use
      SFX Archives (ZIP or CAB)
      because PA can create ZIP - archives,
      which are not supported by all archivers…

    I recommend using CAB SFX, because
    "With CAB format, you can get much better compression rates than ZIP format."

    Thanks!
