Good evening everyone!
This benchmark is what the "DOS Archiver Benchmark" originally was supposed to be but then changed.
This is just a fun benchmark to see how much we can compress a file with the following 2 requirements:
1) The program can NOT exceed 1,999 K in Windows Task Manger during compression.
2) The compression program must be a Win32 or Win64 executable.
The file to be compressed is as follows:
- Microsoft Office folder "Office12"
- Size: 555 MB (582,474,448 bytes)
- Total Files: 2,054
The folder is archived in a single .shar file using Shelwien's SHAR archiver program with the following command:
And now for the results:
shar a Office12.shar Office12\
12/19/14 - Updated UFA with "-m9" switch
12/18/14 - Added UFA 0.04b1
12/18/14 - Added ARJZ 0.15
12/18/14 - Updated RAR with "-mm" switch
12/18/14 - Added IMP 1.12
12/18/14 - Added ASHFORD
12/17/14 - Added LZOP
12/17/14 - Added P5
12/17/14 - Added SNAPPY 126.96.36.199
If you'd like to suggest or submit a program to be tested, please post or send me a PM. For submissions, please only submit Win32 or Win64 executables as I will not bother trying to compile sources.

I will continue to update this first post when new file compressors are found (by me or by others) that meet the requirements for this benchmark.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please remember, this benchmark has absolutely no practical purpose--it is just for fun.
