poor unzipping performance

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Brian Schwartz, Feb 2, 2007.

  1. When unzipping a 4-5mb file with around 20-30 files it takes a good 2-3 mins
    to unzip, avg 19-40k speeds. Onces its unzip im able to copy it very fast,
    its just unzipping. Anyone have this issue and if ya did how did ya fix it.

  2. I do all of my zipping and unzipping from within Total Commander. It is very
    fast. Search Google for it.

    Yea, it seems that just recently WinZip has been slow. Maybe it took a hit
    from one of the latest Viata updates.

    folders feature

    Oh ok. I wonder whet the extension is on the files he has.

    If you downloaded a file from the internet it will have a flag on it
    indicating so. That means that when you unzip all the data goes thru your
    virus checker. Find the files and right click to show properties. You
    should notice a "UNBLOCK" button. Click this and the time will go back to

    I have not found a way to change this flag other than the properties method.

    When did this block thing start? I've been unzipping for a long time and
    this performance hit just started for me. Thanks for the tip anyway.

    I done that, and it didn't make a lick of difference to me.
