7zX 1.7.1 is now available for download.
Hello – this is great tool – in “PackingPack Duet” with The Unarchiver. But I have detected, that added Automator’s workflow for Finder is not working properly. To correct this, edit workflow with Automator: remove the 1st step (action) and leave only the 2nd one. After this, selecting files/folders in Finder and choosing action for making archive with 7zx, works OK.
I just don’t get this program. I drag multiple files to the 7zX icon on the dock, and instead of archiving the files all into a single 7z file, it creates separate 7z files for each file. Makes no sense.
I agree with SCJ, it should make only one archive. That seems more logical to me.
other things :
-a progress bar would be nice
-it’s pretty hard to cancel a compression
thank you for this software, by the way
need it, love it
It’s a great program. Thanks.
But I would like to report that, after I created a 7-zip archive with Chinese characters inside, I tried to use 7zx to extract it but seems 7zx judged that I would like to compress again rather than extract. The problem does not exist if I change the filename to English.
good tool and thanks
7zX creates a folder called __MACOSX whenever it unzips files. If this is a temporary file, it should be deleted when the zip/unzipping processed is finished. Otherwise, it’s a great product!
Is it possible to choose the destination folder for the archive created ?
(’cause there’s no space left on the device of the original file )
That __MacOSX folder thing has got to go. Under various circumstances it tries to compress ZIPs instead of uncrompressing.
Not terribly thrilled in general. Perhaps when i come across more 7zip files and more people accept them.
I’ve tested 7zX with a slightly larger directory – about 5 GB – and it didn’t finish to compress it. Probably a bug? I’ve also given the job to EZ 7z which has been slow but successful.
Sorry for double posting!
how do install? when i open up 7zX it says its a drag and drop file
Офигеть просто! Все, блин, всё знают, кроме меня
Your software, which hasn’t been updated in two years and no longer receives any support in your forums or on this blog, has clearly become abandonware.
It was nice that you created these two freeware programs. But both involve vital functions — the creation of (apparently) stable file archives and the testing of hard drives to determine if issues exist that are serious enough to warrant the display of (apparently accurate) projected failure dates.
You may have stopped development and user support because you no longer had time for these projects. That’s understandable. Or you may have just found yourself over your head technically, as the forum postings and replies (or lack of replies) suggest. (Replies from a developer containing words like “should” when describing a software’s functions and stability are very scary.)
In either case, you should either make it clear that you are still developing the software and begin providing support again — or do the responsible thing and take down your Web site and retire the software.
I see this happening all over the Internet. When a hobbyist developer creates some game software or something else that doesn’t have the possibility of causing harm, it’s no big deal if they continue hosting their software and basically move on and forget about it. But the type of software on this site and others is often downloaded by users who don’t know about the risks — and when they have a question, it goes unanswered on the forums for a year or more (and probably forever).
Do the responsible thing and just post a message saying that you’ve moved on in your life — and maybe post some links to the other three or so software programs that do a better job of handling 7z files on the Mac.
I want to zip a folder with .jpg files and the alarm :
2010-05-01 18:52:46.028 Pashua[26543:903] Can’t open input server /Library/InputManagers/QuicKeysIM
at the first time, only zip file, I can’t expand it.
I do again in app and now in spite of the alarm I can expand it.
the downloads links are broken……
Thxs… and one question: How could I make a donation?
Download links are broken…any chance they get fixed?
