comment How to make 7-Zip faster
This answer is very specific to an aging technology. It's probably not useful to try this with SSDs because the seek time is so much lower. The random IOPS is less likely to be the bottleneck. Your case was pretty special because you were performing very little compression. Basically you were doing a file copy. So yeah, sequential access on a spinning HD is clearly a winner. Typical 7zip usecases will likely be CPU bound, not IO bound. For that, using all CPU cores is essential. But for those in a similar situation, your advice is very valuable.
