    Does Linux 7za have a command line option to restore user IDs and group IDs (e.g. unzip -X)?  If so, what is it?  If not, this would be a very nice feature.

      I did not known that the zip format can store UID or GUID !

      The 7z Format is maintained by Igor Pavlov.
      Igor Pavlov develops for Windows and does not support "Windows UID/GID"
      nor "Unix UID/GUID".

      Yes, it would be.
      But I think that Igor Pavlov does not want to add this feature
      in the (near) future.

      For Unix, do as usual : "tar + gz" or "tar + bzip2 or "tar + 7z" :

      - tar cf - dir | 7za a -si archive.7z

      - 7za x -so archive.7z | tar xf -

      But why you need TAR? TAre it's used for gzip and bzip, 'coz can't handle multiple archives.

      If you do:

      7za a -mx namefile namedirectory/* it's easy.

      For unpack

      7za x namefile packed.
