@xpect. On your pc how much does rar fast mode compare to the rar best mode with recovery record. The 7z files that i downloaded i have repacked them in rar at fast mode. Because rar unpacks so much faster, 7z just is to slow at unpacking. But is better at making smaller files to squeeze more onto magix ftp.
A good freeware cd-dvd tool for windows is the freeware ImgBurn. Relative of dvddecryptor.
Yes to any new ftp that's available or launching, pm me if a private one.
