XZ archive support

Post by *Devastator » 2018-06-15, 12:26 UTC

Hello.
Today i got surprised. There are no support for .xz archives.
This is possible to implement in the future?
Thanks.

7zip can handle .xz archives.
So install the Total7zip plugin and add the .xz type.

There's a plugin for .xz archives on the TC homepage.

I prefer not to many plugins if one can do it all.
The Total7zip handles for me .7z, .iso, .wim, .vhd

And I prefer small plugins (yes, I know that my own plugins are not that small). Total7zip is several megabytes in size when considering the required 7zip standalone program.

Anyway, I just wanted to mention that there's another option.

Agreed, but the size of the stand-alone part doesn't count in my case
as I have installed the full 7zip program and the Total7zip plugin
has has only links to the installation.
