ConstanceJill;4011167I had put the first sentence in bold only because it was on that first installer screen I was talking about, however the sentence that came next was more important, and you don't seem to have read it... it's part of the WinRAR license too.[/quote] Yes, a licence that will be different if it's not shareware anymore, which is what I was trying to imply.

[QUOTE=ConstanceJill;4011167]Choosing "Ultra" compression doesn't make everything ... for optimal results, you should use the 7z format, LZMA method (or PPMd if your files are mostly about text, maybe) and the biggest dictionnary size you can according to memory usage (if you don't want hellish disk swap usage slowing your machine down deadly).

It was done with LZMA set at 64MB, which is the largest that machine can use without going into the page file and thrashing the hard drive.

Bs|Archaon;4011401Yes, a licence that will be different if it's not shareware anymore, which is what I was trying to imply.[/quote]I don't see the point with the program being a shareware or not... I mean, we don't care how they call it, there is a rule in the license agreement saying you have to pay if you want to keep using it after a while, and don't have the right to install if you don't agree with the license. Thus you *have to* pay if you want to keep using if after 40 days.

Hmm, did you enable "solid archive" too ? Can you upload the RAR archive somewhere so we may conduct tests on its contents by ourselves too (if it doesn't contain anything confidential/personal, of course) ? ^^

It contains nearly 20 years worth of accounts, so that would be a no.

My point was that the terms of use will have changed. The old shareware version may not have even specified a time limit or 40 days (or whatever).
