How to delete original files after archiving or extracting?



  • I have use batch zip and mutiple extract in order to process a large amount of files.But I cannot find an option to enable deleting automatically the original files after these two action (in winrar,for example ,have this delete after archiving option)can you help me how to do so?because If I use window explorer search and delete then explorer crash forever and show an screen warning that it cannot read the source files and cannot delete them .

    any hints about this ?

    thanks



  • @j5slng2d:

    an option to enable deleting automatically the original files

    There isn’t one, PA Batch Zip tool does not support MOVE - only ADD.
    It also does not allow selection of a Compression Profile.
    So at the moment this is not possible.

    After extracting, do you mean to delete the archive files? This is also not possible.

    The simplest way would be to use folders (e.g. c:\original and c:\destination) and then delete the original folder but…

    Do you really mean that explorer CRASHES :eek:
    A warning screen is one thing, but a CRASH is much more serious (although not a PA problem).



  • Thanks you for your reply.I hope this two features (remove archive and original files )will appear in the future version。 :p



  • You should use Total Commander for deleting those files, until PowerArchiver includes this feature. I had this like of problem before when I had more that one million AVI files in one folder. Windows crashed immideatly when I’ve enterred the folder.
