As a PA Toolbox User, I want multi-core 7-Zip Operations

  • Hello,

    I noticed that unlike ZipX (which is really fast and runs on multiple-cores), 7-Zip compression and decompression is one-core only and, thus, slow.

    Would it be possible to implement a mechanism to allow Ultra (de/compression ratio) and multi-core, so as to allow speedier operations?

    LZMA uses 2 cores, but LZMA2 uses only 1 core due to crash we get every time we turn on multiple threads… thanks for pushing this up and investigation.

    This has been fixed in PA 2017 and it works well… PA format works even better. Thanks.
