Remove many files from Archive with one command


  • Alpha Testers

    Hi!
    I’m doing some tests with list files in PACOMP and the documentation about this says the following thing.

    @list : specify list of files for compression (use filename instead of list - see example)

    I assume this means that I can only use a list file when I create a archive using the -a parameter.

    I have tried this:

    pacomp -d Test_Remove.zip @Filelist.txt

    Archive: D:\Script\Test_Remove.zip
    preparing to compress…
    *** WARNING: Nothing to add or update…

    All OK

    The error probably appears because I can only use a list file when I create the archive and not when delete files from it.

    Now I can remove one file at a time, but if the Archive is about 1 Gb in size, it will take a lot of time updating the archive after removing one file. It would be better if I could have a list of files that I wanted to remove from the archive. That way I could for example remove 10 files at one time and then update the archive instead of remove 1 file at a time and update the archive 10 times in total.

    If each update of the Archive takes approximate 5 min, then it would take about 50 min to remove 10 files from an Archive that is 1 Gb in size. If I could remove the 10 files at one time instead, then the whole update would take 5 min instead of 50 min.

    My question is this:
    Is it possible to remove more than one file at a time from an archive using PACL?

    If not, I’ll put it in a Wishlist for future versions of PACL.

    Kind Regards
    Micke

    Try with PACL 6.02 and lets see what happens 🙂

    Hi!
    I have tested removing more than one file from a Archive by using a listfile. Here’s the results from this test.

    As you can see, only PA_Test\IMG_01.jpg was removed from the archive.

    Let me know if I have missed something in these tests. I’m looking forward this functionality and will do more tests of it when you have updated PACL with it.

  • I agree with you Micke

    Hello!
    I’ve tested removing files from an archive using a listfile, but it still doesn’t work.

    Tested with PACL 7.00 RC1.

    Is this something that will be fixed in 7.00?

    Right now it’s not possible to remove more than one file at a time from an archive using PACL. This is a big limitation of the program.

    Kind Regards
    Micke


  • Alpha Testers

    @spwolf:

    Try with PACL 6.02 and lets see what happens 🙂

    I’m just curious if you have plans to implement support for removing more than one file at a time from an archive using PACL? It’s not working in 6.02 and when testing in 7.00 RC1, the result is the same as in 6.01 and 6.02.

    Kind Regards
    Micke

  • Alpha Testers

    Thanks for the update. I’ll test the new version and get back with the result from that test.

    Hi!
    Now I’m finished with my testing of PACL 7.00 [May 11 2012]. I’ve made 4 different tests of removing files from an archive using a listfile.

    Each test will be in a separate post in this thread

    Test 1 - Archive with no paths to the files inside

    Begin with create the archive T1_NoPath.zip
