Multicore Support for PAE Decrypt/Encrypt

  • I have a >2GB zip file that I encrypted to PAE. It takes literally >40 minutes to decrypt, and if I accidentally mistype the password, that’s a waster 40 minutes.

    Right now I’m decrypting the file and it’s only using 25% of my Quad Core (if I force affinity to 1 core, that cores usage goes up to 100%). Are there any plans to further implement multi core support into these other areas?

    multicore decompression is much different to compression, but we will see… there is actually something going on with pae format these days 😉

  • is PAE a powerarchiver proprietary format?

    currently yeah…well all of the formats inside are public, it is just container.

    keep in mind that i do not know of anything that decrypts in multicore actually, not in true sense of word. For instance no compression tools support multicore extraction either, just compression.
