-o (set Output directory) switch

-t (set Type of archive) switch

Specifies the type of archive.

Syntax


-t{archive_type}

{archive_type}
Specifies the type of archive. It can be: 7z, split, zip, gzip, bzip2, tar, .... 7z format is the default.

If -t{archive_type} switch is not specified, 7-Zip uses extension of archive to detect the type of archive.

Note: gzip or bzip2 formats support only one file per archive. If you want to compress more than one file to these formats, create a tar archive first, and then compress it with your selected format.

7z a -tzip archive.zip *.txt

adds all *.txt files from current directory to zip archive archive.zip.


7z t -t7z.split archive.7z.001

tests all files in archive.7z.001. It also checks that archive is multivolume .7z archive.


7z x -tiso archive.iso

extracts files from archive.iso open as ISO archive.


7z x -tudf archive.iso
