    I am sorry if this is a repost, but I have been searching this forum and google for the past 3 days, and nothing it working.  I am trying to compress all files in the directory with ULTRA compression, every time I type in the command, its finishes sucessfully but doesnt change 7z file to smaller size, with is 39MB of files

    these are the commands i have tried

    7z a -t7z -mx=9 "filename"
    7z a -t7z -mx9 "filename"

    nothing works, even tried puttin all files in folder and then compressing still nothing

    Hello everyone,

    My first guess is -> you are trying to compress some kind of pictures / music / video.
    Otherwise -> please give some more details about the files you want to compress.

    Best regards!
