  • I was compressing some files with the latest beta and realized I could not find a move command.

    With PKZIP i had a -M command that would delete the archived files after they were all successfully compressed into the zip.

    Is there not a simular command with 7-ZIP?   I realized this when -M did not work and found it was for method

    thanks for your help

      7-Zip has no that function still.

      • Igor, please add a 7za.exe command-line command "m", which is exactly as "a" command, except it deletes the source files after compressing them.  That's the only thing keeping me from switching from my current command-line compression program.

        Thanks in advance!

    • I would like to suggest tht feature be considered for a future relase.  I find having that makes it so much easier when you are compressing a directory or something to save space.

      thanks

    • I could use a move function as well.

      Yeah, I must admit that would come in handy.  And, for a failsafe, you could have it move files to the Recycle Bin, on non-networked drives.  Just a suggestion - either way 7-zip is awesome ;)
