Creating batch archive.
« on: October 30, 2008, 01:03:03 PM »
So I am copressing the files and splitting them in parts:

For example MyVideo.avi (800MB) is splitted into:

MyVideo.part1.rar (100MB)
..
...
...
MyVideo.part8.rar (100MB)

I would like to do this to all avi files in a folder. And I would like to test the archives as well
How can I do this? Because right now, I am doing these compressions manually which takes sometime :(

Thanks in advance

foxtrot, this is the kind of thing Drag and Drop Robot is good at.
What you'll have to figure out is what the commandline options are in winrar to compress and split and then just create a new job.
Then just drag your avi files into the window and go.

you have to run two separate commands - one to archive & another to test.

from helpfile of Winrar..
•  WinRAR  a -v100mb <archivename> <MyVideo.avi>
•  WinRAR  t <foldername>\*.rar

Hey foxtrot1213

try this:

C:\Program Files\WinRAR\Rar.exe A -t -v98078 "%A.rar" "%NO"

(the -t tests the archive at the end)

You will have to drag the files in the window and not the directory tho...

But winrar can do it itself..

Just highlight all the files, right click - add to archive... set your preferences in the first tab... then do check the below box in the "files" tab:
