    Can 7-zip files be allowed in the upload list, please, as 7-zip is easily the best FREE compaction prog it is widely used.

    Do you mean to attach to posts? Or uploaded to the actual Download section? Because 7-zip files are already allowed there.

    The native .7z format is better than zip files, imo.

    Works a treat now Bram thanks,:clap:

    @ Dietmar, yes I know but the compaction is better, thus easier to fit under forum max size, in 7-zip format.

    With DDS and GMT files, 7zip works absolute wonders.
