    So what is the quickest way to split rar or just rar an iso? Just used rawdump to make iso. When using winrar it takes like 1hr and 20mins to do a NCG game. There has got to be a better way. If you know of one please post.

    If I can gather right, you are trying to split up an ISO into rar format? If you choose to compress it will take quite a while. Usually I go with the 'Store' method when splitting something of that size. No compression, but it goes much faster, and you aren't going to get much difference by compressing anyway.

    yeah, i wanted to get rid of the bloat while storing the backup with other NGC backups on a data dvd (so to speak). then when needed unpack and burn.

    I am fully aware of ngc shrinker emu_kidid made but not wanting that.

    Well at least i know the long period is normal.


    thanks

    Compression with something like winrar will take a while and a fair amount of resources, personally I would use 7zip and fiddle with the options like so:

    That will generate serious compression but take ages, you could also drop the dictionary size, word size and compression strength (this is killer).
