Windows 7: ( 7-Zip ) Default Settings? Defaults , wt#?

16 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7 x64
( 7-Zip ) Default Settings? Defaults , wt#?

Using WINDOWS #7 X64(64-bit(Sixty-Four-Bit))

Using 7-zip's x64 version.

You know the page you go to after selecting files to zip?

1 Compression Mentod
2 dictionary size---default is ??
3 word size---default is ??
4 solid block size---default is ??
5 number of cpu threads---default is ?? I got 4 cores but limit is 2??

What are the Default Settings?

Also, What are considered to be the most Optimal Settings for maximum compression possible?

I can't even find default settings mentioned from 7-zip's website. It discusses settings but does not show a set of settings considered to be the default settings.

Also, setting everything to the highest possible setting does not improve compression ratios and sometimes makes the file larger than the files were before.

There seems to be a median set of values for 7-zip to 'like' so that it's ratio is much

p.s. I there is a better place to ask this question please tell me ..
