7z - Solid Archive
7z is a solid archive (like CAB).
So why we have checkbox “~Make Solid Archive”?
7-ZIP supports both solid and non-solid archives, so you can choose which one you want .
So why I can’t update files in “NOT SOLID” 7z archive? :rolleyes:
(old files will be deleted like in solid arch.)
Or maybe this is a bug…??
Thats because in old 7zip dll implementation we could not detect if the archive was solid or not, so we could not do certain things on those files (update, delete, etc). I think new code sorts this out.
