7zip - too long scanning

  • Goran Stojanovic

    Windows XP SP3, 7zip ver 9.20

    I am using this simple command line on several computers with XP SP3

    "C:\Program Files\7-zip\7z.exe a -mx5 -v100m D:\Arhive\BackupSQL_BOS_Prod_2.7z @PackSQL_BOS.txt -r"

    and that works fine on all computers, but in one case, on one computer, the message "Scanning", and flashing coursor on the beggining is taking so long, and archiving does not continue

    I tried ver 9.22, also 9.47, but same problem

    I concluded that on that "problematic" computer I have one folder with several thousends of files, and that is reason why scanning is taking so long

    How to switch off that scanning ?

    Maybe you must remove -r switch.

    Yes, now is working
