No "Move (and replace)" option with 7-ZIP?

  • If I’m creating (or modifying) an archive and select ZIP, I get all the options in the Action drop-down–Add, Update, Freshen, Move. But if I select 7-ZIP, all I get is Add.

    I noticed this while trying to create a 7-ZIP archive and delete the files on disk afterward. Is this intentional behavior? I can’t see why there would be no Move option just because of the archive format. I can delete the added files afterward if it’s a ZIP archive, but not if it’s a 7-ZIP archive? Please explain.

    it is function of compression engine… we have our own for zip, while we use 7-zip engine for 7zip.

    7-zip’s engine does not support move option.

    thank you.
