Can you include .3MF to the list of re-compressible formats? Its structure is similar to MS Office 2007 documents and Open Document Format. It is a ZIP Deflate archive with XML data and some JPG, and/or PNG pictures inside. Otherwise, if I try to compress .3MF it bearly makes it smaller unless I recompress .3MF to the Store setting then it makes it a lot smaller.
Wish they all would move to 7zip ZSTD in the first place so that the optimized file size with FileOptimizer would be 50% of the ZIP Deflate version. And there would be no extra compression needed :)
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
Some oldies but goodies
Over the years, you have made any number of improvement that I proposed. For that I am VERY grateful.
Others may be undoable . . . either technically or because of copyright restrictions…
But here’s some I can quickly recall:
Proposals I can recall:
1. Keep a list somewhere of what items you have entered in your to-do list from user input. It lets participants know you have heard our concerns, find them meritorious, and plan to address them. Then we can be confident that they will be done, if feasible. And we do not feel the need to remind you.
2. A slew of concerns with profiles. These are potentially powerful tool that give the user the ability to shape PA for our particular needs (which will vary from person to person).
a. Some particular glitches I recently reported (and assume there are on the todo list.
b. Adding the ability for users to add their particular profiles to the shell (so one doesn’t have just compress to zip, but “Compress to Mole’s sculpted zipx profile".).
3. if possible, have the system detect whether an existing archive into which the an user wants to place a file is already encrypted, and so select by default the encrypted version of that format and profile.
4. Give the option for the user to move (rather than just copy) a file into an archive by some key combo (Ctrl while D&D).
5. Some changes to AC (10-8-2013). . . but most of these may already be in the pipeline.
6. Add encrypt filenames to every add window where that is a technical option.
7. Add more options (like encrypt filenames) to PBS backup scripts.
8. ZTE with more particular options (# of downloads, time for download etc.) for each use of ZTE.
9. Any chance to use SFX with PAE files?
10. Speed upload to cloud (e.g., DropBox)
11. When using ZTE with multiple files, let the minimum setting for using ZTE be determined by the TOTAL size of the collective files rather than each file individually.
12. . In FTP, use the same way of indicating file size in both panes (so it is easier to determine if the upload was successful).
Cloud application is actually very good, i would like to see this expanded on and improved.
Not sure exactly what you could do but when you look at onedrive and dropbox etc there are plenty of options for you.
Richard, you better add some of your wishes as well…
