Search 7Zip files too

Post by pnachtwey »

I don't know if there is a library that makes it easy to search .7z files. It would be nice if it were possible because I use .7z over .zip when I can. Right now I need to unzip the .7z files to a directory and search on my NAS. I then use regular zip so they can be searched.

I like the idea of using hard links for company NAS but one must be careful not to delete the original file the links point to. When using hard links the original file needs to be protected or hidden until all the links to it are deleted. How to do this is the question. Maybe others have an idea. At work we have a NetApp NAS that takes care of duplicates by adding links and automatically removes the original when all links are gone. I know I am asking a lot. This feature could be a paid for add on.

Just an idea. Otherwise I find Duplicate Cleaner Pro to be a great tool for anyone that has a NAS or two.
