    Thumbs up [RESOLVED] batch test archive files?

    I have a bunch of rar and zip files without sfv. Was wondering if there is a way to test these files instead of having to manually do it one by one. For now, all I can do is use extract now, then delete the destination folder when done. Since most of these files will be copied to other folders, or sometimes to an external drive.

    Don't really want to pay money for something like bitzipper.

    Been using it for years as an unarchiver. But can only test one file set at a time.

    Tried that previously. Issue is that all the files have to be in the same directory. I like to organize and have in proper folders, otherwise it's such a mess. The same with context menu. You have to select the file, and not the folder.


    Unless for some reason this has changed since version 4.57.

    You can see if the following applies,


    No comment on effectiveness since I test my archives almost immediately on receipt.
    Good luck.
