Why would you need to merge the parts of an 7z archive again? The 7-zip archiver as well as the 7z support built into TC itself can handle 7z split-archives just fine. It would be quite bad if the 7zip plug-in prevents TC from unpacking split 7z archives...

there is no such thing as split 7z archives Igor just implemented an already existing split feature you don't need to use it on 7z files it can split and merge what ever and it came with TC years before 7z existed

ps you need all split files to be in the same folder before you can decompress a "split 7z" that's not true for split rars or zips (even the dead ace had a true split feature)

I was specifically referring to your suggestion that you can merge "non-existing" 7z split archives with Files->Combine Files..., which could be read like that is the way how "non-existing" 7z split files should usually be handled with TC.

Of course 7-zip (i mean 7-zip tool from I. Pavlov and similar other archiving tools supporting 7z; i am not referring to the plug-in) as well as TC do support "non-existing" split 7z archives automatically without you needing to merge the parts first. So, yes, there is no point for manually merging (i.e., Files->Combine Files...) the parts of those "non-existing" 7z split files.

If the plug-in is unable and prevents TC from handling those "non-existing" 7z split archives, then this is major flaw. Sure, manually merging the split 7z archive could work-around this. But then again, why would you want to use such a plug-in in this case instead of using TC without this plug-in (or with another tool/plug-in) that can handle "non-existing" split 7z archives properly without any hassle?

Yeah, sure, whatever you say. It seems you know more about 7z than Igor Pavlov. :twisted: /dismissive_irony
And whatever you are smoking, perhaps don't... ;) ...especially when considering what you yourself said in your previous post:

yes but it doesn't need to as 7zip does not have multivolume support it uses binary split which TC supports natively [...]

But curiously enough Total7Zip Plugin has the option for making multiple archives but it is not work. I hoped 7Zip does...
Now I use native WinRar and 7Zip archivers for this purpose.

001 has existed for years people asked Igor for a multivolume support and all he did is implement an existing feature a binary split which is natively supported by TC

I never even argued about what you say here. Go back and look at my posts again. :roll:

Hi,
Quick question about the development of the 7Zip plug-in. I installed the latest 7Zip version (0.7.6.6) on 64-bit Total Commander and set it up to chew away at a 1GB job.
I noticed it was running very slowly, so I checked my Resource Monitor in Win 10 and I noticed it was only using 1 CPU.

Is it possible to get 7zip to use more of the available CPUs? If so, any plans do implement this in future builds?

Thanks,
Dave
