Extract begins extracting all, just like the screenshots say, and the "move to" and "copy to" commands both start moving/copying the entire archive to the spesified place.

=/ Im going to delete 7zip completely, and grab another, older version, see how that goes.

Well im beginning to think it's the archive, and not 7Zip, cause redownloading and trying both the same version again, and a diffrent version again, does the same thing. Odd though that they aren't highlighting the full line like in your screenshot. Ohwell Heh

Do following:

Create 7Zip archive from some folder you have.

Try to extract 1 or 2 files out of that archive to temp folder.

If it works, you have your answer.

Or email eBooks to other good readers (like my self) :whistle:

Even I'm sure I have more then once every single book in your complet. LOL

To answer the question in the third post, that would be the command to do it in Linux I believe.

ZipGenius does the trick for me. If you keep having problems with 7-Zip, maybe you could try that?

@Beef
Yeps you are right. but I assumend the basic options would be the same between the different OS-es

@Anubis
depends wether you want recursion or not
without:
Code:
7z a result.7z directoryname
with
Code:
7z a -r result.7z direcotryname
offcourse you can specify -m parameter to improve compression

here are some useful options
Code:
7-Zip 4.33 beta *Copyright (c) 1999-2006 Igor Pavlov *2006-02-05
p7zip Version 4.33 (locale=C,Utf16=off,HugeFiles=on)
 *
Usage: 7z <command> [<switches>...] <archive_name> [<file_names>...]
 * * * [<@listfiles...>]
 *
<Commands>
 *a: Add files to archive
 *d: Delete files from archive
 *e: Extract files from archive (without using directory names)
 *l: List contents of archive
 *t: Test integrity of archive
 *u: Update files to archive
 *x: eXtract files with full paths
<Switches>
 *-ai[r[-|0]]{@listfile|!wildcard}: Include archives
 *-ax[r[-|0]]{@listfile|!wildcard}: eXclude archives
 *-bd: Disable percentage indicator
 *-i[r[-|0]]{@listfile|!wildcard}: Include filenames
 *-l: don't store symlinks; store the files/directories they point to
 *CAUTION : the scanning stage can never end because of symlinks like '..'
 * * * * * *(ex: *ln -s .. ldir)
 *-m{Parameters}: set compression Method (see the manual)
 *-o{Directory}: set Output directory
 *-p{Password}: set Password
 *-r[-|0]: Recurse subdirectories
 *(CAUTION: this flag does not do what you think, avoid using it)
 *-sfx[{name}]: Create SFX archive
 *-si[{name}]: read data from stdin
 *-so: write data to stdout (eg: % 7z a dummy -tgzip Doc.txt > archive.gz)
 *-t{Type}: Set type of archive
 *-v{Size}[b|k|m|g]: Create volumes
 *-u[-][p#][q#][r#][x#][y#][z#][!newArchiveName]: Update options
 *-w[path]: assign Work directory. Empty path means a temporary directory
 *-x[r[-|0]]]{@listfile|!wildcard}: eXclude filenames

It's normal the archive <strike>must be</strike> IS a solid one (all the files are compresseds as a single big file) it's a technic that help to reduce size even more (drasticly on files with very fews differences like, for EXAMPLE; roms of diferents regions or languages....)
But the conterpart il that when you want one specific file it have to uncompress every file that been interlaced with the one you want.
In the end you'll only get the files you asked for.
