Difference between the 7zip and zip versions?
So ive become pretty partial to using softwares in portable versions which are ran from a folder I sync with my dropbox. This is no exception and ive been using it for quite some time with a small batch to back up modifications which wont persist otherwise.
(+1 for an updater that works around the aforementioned :P)
That all being said, twice ive had the update fail and explode my “install” I panicked as themes were back to default, sessions were gone etc etc. Even copying the files from my backup folder again seemed to do nothing to resolve it.
What turned out to be the issue was extracting the 7zip version instead of the zip version. Both times I had forgotten and downloaded the zip version instead.
What I am after is why on earth would this make a difference? I have to assume the only change is the compression method so after extraction to the install folder, the files should be the same and thus my backed up files from the prior install (xmls) should function the same.
Whats going on here?
@Alan-Kilborn hash match n all? dont understand it. will have to keep playing around and see i suppose. for now im “locked-in” to downloading the 7z variant lol.
