Recently I noticed that if I try to compress more than 1 file using 7zip, gzip format is not present in the Archive Format-List. Can anyone explain why?
Can't we have more than 1 file in gzip?
I'm using 7-Zip v9.20. I also tried with v16. But same there/
Thanks in advance
No. You can't have more than one file in the gzip format.
Instead you would use tar followed by gzip. tar converts a set of directories and files into a stream of bytes, which is then compressed by gzip. You have probably already seen these files, with the suffix .tar.gz.
