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
It would be nice to be able to at least extract Zstandard archives.
I prefer to use light themes, and when, for example, I have set up my main archive screen to be Classic Toolbar with Blizzard Blue, files in the archive are highlighted (no checkboxes, full row select) with white text on grey background. They are easy to see .
However, in the Add screens, the files and folders are black type upon a pale blue background, which is not so readily visible, especially when highlighting separate files in lists with Ctrl/Click for addition. It would be ideal if the backgrounds to files in these screens could be set to mimic the highlighting of those in the main archive window.
I have tried experimenting with different themes and settings for skins, toolbars and so forth, but, unless I’ve missed something, none seem to give me the effect I want.
Re: Windows 11 Context menu support
It would really make me happy if you put .BH in the Windows 11 context menu. I know it’s in the “More Options” section, but this would make it more convenient. Don’t know why the option to add it to the menu isn’t there in the first place. P-L-E-A-S-E ??? :) Thanks You!
Any chance of including this format in a future release?
Exceptional compression levels.
Split 7zip file task and split file profiles
I’d like to have functionality for splitting files.
I’d like to be able to split a 7zip file to convert it to multi-volume.
I need profiles for split and ability to add split task to queue.
You can create split archives - PA calls this “Disk Spanning” for historical reasons.
However, to “split” an existing archive is only available for Zip - other types have to be done manually (extract / re-compress).
Splitting 7zip file is like splitting any other file with a common split /combine tool found in file managers (split / combine in speed commander or total commander)
What i am suggesting is that PA support also generic split/combine jobs with profiles suitable for various archive types.
But that generic type of splitting does not create “multi volume” archives which you said you wanted, these “splits” would have to be re-joined before you could extract from them.
“Spanning” is part of the compression function and these do not have to be re-joined before extracting (hence the term “multi-volume”.
I was agreeing that spanning would be useful for other formats such as 7zip - but for generic splitting I think there are already good utilities available. (eg HJSplit ).
I use GSplit for splitting 7zip archives.
As long as 7zip naming standard is respected 7zip sees the split files as multi-volume and is able to extract them.
