[solved] TC 8.5 and up - Internal 7zip unpacker doesn't work for comparing by content in the Sync Tool

Post by *petermad »

If I in the "Synchronize directories" tool try to compare a directory to the content of a 7zip archive, and I have checked the option "by content", no comparing takes place unless I have a plugin for 7zip files installed.

Why can't TC's own 7zip unpacker unpack the files for comparing? - is this a bug or a missing feature?

This is also the case for *.ace files, they are not unpacked for comparing in neither the Sync tool nor in the Compare contents tool

This is not new to TC 9.50 - it is like that since TC 8.50

This isn't supported because it would be very slow with solid archives. I cannot prevent it with plugins because I can't tell whether they support solid archives or not.

Isn't that contradicting what you write here: viewtopic.php?p=367565#p367565 ?
