CLS-diskspan


The FreeArc plugin allows FreeArc split archives, perfect for multi disk unpacking processes (Conversions etc.) also serves as a replacement for UltraARC.

CLS-diskspan unlike UltraARC which merged archives back in order for unpacking to be possible does not merge archives meaning less I/O meaning more speed and better size output.

The method diskspan should come after all methods you would have used for compression.

Example:

pzlib:t4+srep:m3f:lzma:ultra+diskspan:4.35gb:4.36gb

The disk span method comes with two parameters. The first parameter is for first volume size, the second one is for all volumes apart from the first.

Example:

diskspan:390mb:400mb

390mb in this case is the first volume size then the rest of the volumes will be 400mb

For conversions:

CLS-diskspan comes with two parameters that can be executed directly from FreeArc if cls is used.

"--sort" and "--makeiso"

--sort simply moves the created archives in their converted disk folders readying them for burning to disc, it automatically creates autorun.inf and places setup icons and etc.
--makeiso just creates disc images from the sorted folders with the use of "oscdimg.exe" which should be placed in the same folder as FreeArc.

Known issues:

  1. Theoretically CLS-diskspan should NOT work with file extension grouping (masks)
  2. The archive should be fully solid for CLS-diskspan to work.
  3. OpenDialog or random errors that occur in Inno Setup are due to long directory paths
