WinRAR suggestion/query
« on: 10 July 2012, 15:18 »

Not sure if there's an option to fix this myself that I've missed (I don't think so), but.... when storing images in RAR format, if an image in a set needs renaming CMP/WinRAR renames and re-compresses the entire set.

If I do the same (rename the image) via opening in WinRAR, it does not appear to re-compress and is therefore much quicker. I only recently noticed this on big images such as in No-Intro 3DS.

Is there a way to get CMP to call WinRAR to rename via this method?

Any ideas why this is? Maybe it just copies existing compressed stream? Updates file metadata only?

Renaming is done differently in cmpro. It calls winrar's add/delete options only. I may check if the cmdline winrar rename operation can be used.

OK, cool. Would be good if it can/you can implement... is difference between it taking a few seconds (rename) to potentially >20mins (add/del) depending on set.
