    I'm trying to get more speed on compression using multithreading, but gzip fails to run in MT mode:

    7za a -tgzip -mx=2 -mmt=8

    gives me

    System error:

    If I try to use -tzip a don't see any speedup from using MT, only one core is used.

    Is it possible to run gzip in MT mode?

    7-zip doesn't support multithreading for gzip. Use xz instead:

    7za a file.xz file
