7-Zip and its compression formats.

Hello everybody.


I'm sure that you remember my post about Automation of checking digital archives (RAR, ZIP and ARJ formats). Somebody forget that great zip-tool 7-Zip can't create RAR archive, it can only decompress such archive. For you memory I write below the table about formats from Z-Zip handbook.

So, yesterday I found another interesting feature in 7-Zip. 7-Zip use different list of compression formats  for File and for Folder with files. Why? I don't know now, I'll try to resolve this my news later.




See you later.
