Higher level compress
Jul 30th, 2013 at 8:25pm
 
I wonder if we can compress higher level of zip.

In old days, I have to manually RAR files , you know it is lik 10-20 GB's of text files.  with default ZIP it is like 2x of old RAR files, I wonder if we can change compression rate of ZIP component, may be to 7z (Level9) ?

You can use the 'start any .bat-file' plugin together with any command line enabled zip program (winrar, 7zip, ...) to get a (maybe) higher compression.

Something like this .bat file should do the trick:
Code:
SET RAR=C:\Program Files\WinRar\rar.exe
SET RARSWITCHES=-hpMySecretPasswd -rr

"%RAR%" a %RARSWITCHES% "C:\Rars\%WD_FILE_B%.rar" "%WD_FILE%"
 



The %WD_... variables are explained here:
