7zip configuration
« on: August 22, 2013, 14:16:24 »
I love the rich support for archive files in Multi Commander, but was disappointed that I could not find any config options to let me set the compression level (I prefer to use Ultra) nor the compression method (I like LZMA2) to get the best possible compression.

Problem is that the 7-Zip api is a mess and do not really explain how to do all those things.

Are you using the 7-Zip DLL api or the external command line switches?

OK, even if you don't want to provide user control over the 7-Zip options, please could you consider setting your internal methods to use the best compression options (Ultra+LZMA2)?

Not a question about wanting.. question about getting the time to find out how the API works. the documentation is not so informative, So it is very time consuming to figure out how it works.
