Has anyone considered updating or modifying the UGzip program to use 7zip compression?

I use it regularly for archiving.

 

Such a thing is well beyond my abilities, but maybe one of you could?

7-Zip is open source software. Most of the source code is under the GNU LGPL license. The unRAR code is under a mixed license: GNU LGPL + unRAR restrictions. Check license information here: 7-Zip license.

You can use 7-Zip on any computer, including a computer in a commercial organization. You don't need to register or pay for 7-Zip.

Re: UGZip

You would need to contact the author of the program, or whoever is maintaining the source code. A long time ago is was Weidemann engineering, but I don't know the current status.

while this does use 7zip. its commandline based.

 

if you just run the journal, it'll 7zip every open file and stick it in your temp.

 

I havent tried to run it per the instructions yet.

yes, the zip-package goes to your %UGII_TMP_DIR%.

 

Attached a updated journal that asks the output folder and it will store the last output location in the windows registry.

Just edit the location where 7zip is installed (line 97-102)
