To T7zip or not to T7zip
« on: March 24, 2012 - 19:35:56 »
I have just bought a new 3TB harddisk, because one of my old ones is getting buggy. I am rebuilding to the new disk and already T7zipped my MAME ROMs and the No-Intro sets.
UnRenamed sets will be a bitch, since speed is terrible when just rebuilding to T7zip.

Would you advise me to (T)7zip my sets and will the tracker allow T7zipped uploads? If yes, how can I T7zip sets with lotsa files?

TIA, alcoatjez

t7zip would be disastrous for your UnRenamed sets if you plan on ever updating them -- you'd then be better off extracting them completely somewhere and rebuilding. Not worth wasting your time over.

I wont bother, until such time, as I can update, without having to do a complete rebuild...

Well, thats not entirely true.....Sets that do not update often, GOOD sets for example, Ive had torrent7zipped for some time now..

I need to Merge the sets however, which would save even more space......just too busy, and lazy..
