Note: These are the circumstances when ZipScan needs to extract files during a search:
· You have selected to ‘Recursively search archives’. ZipScan has found an archive file that is inside another archive file and needs to extract it so it can be searched
· You have chosen to limit the search by including a text or version resource string. ZipScan has found a file inside an archive whose name matches the filename you are searching for and needs to extract the file to check its text or version resources.
Some RAR archive files require a password just to read the names of the files they contain. They will also be ignored if this option is selected.
ZipScan expects zip files to have a .zip extension. If, for example, you have a zip file that has been renamed to have another file extension, ordinarily ZipScan will not search this file. However, selecting this option means that ZipScan will check every file to see whether it is an archive file. Note, however, that this only applies to files that are stored in directories; files that are stored in other archives will only be searched according to their file extension.
This option overrides all the settings on the File Extension Settings page.
Selecting this option can make your search considerably slower.
This does not affect InstallShield CAB files as they depend on the archive files not being renamed.
