    Publishers Description:
    Reasonable Archiver - Archiver is a new file compression tool, which distinguish itself from traditional file compression with optimized compression ratio.

    Using technology in Reasonable NoClone, Archiver optimizes compression by removing exact and partial duplicates in both file level and data level, providing yet the best compression ratio, and thus further reduce the size of your archives.


    Unlike traditional compression software like Zip and Rar, Reasonable Archiver compress at file level to remove duplicates.

    Hmm, when i see "remove duplicates" that could make me panic Anyone know if when it decompresses an archive that had duplicates it restores the entire thing intact? It's pretty pointless if it doesn't. At the data level i'd guess it uses some sort of delta like RAR does?

    anyone tried to compress something? as far as i understand the description this program only finds identical files and replaces one file with a metainformation only. then it compresses with deflate.

    Reasonable archiver... mmm... sounds reasonable Is it spyware-free-guaranteed somewhere like Softpedia?
    Tested in VM, though. Sharpe Shell version TD4R2, only files in root directory taken (I couldn't get Reasonable Archiver to compress directories). Contains EXE, DLL, 22 files together...

    uncompressed = 19 222 476
    Reasonable Archiver = 8 497 337
    ZIP best = 8 483 563
    RAR best solid = 3 666 569
    7Z ultra 64MB dict, wordlen 96 = 3 079 352

    Really not worth it.

    This program is highly asymmetric. Compression take much time even on small files, so this tool is absolutely useless.

    Besides, is there any way to uninstall it? Installator doesn't contain uninstaller.
