Add files to CAR archive

You can add files and folders only to an open archive. Open a CAR archive file in one pane and select the files and/or folders that will be added in the other pane. Then press F5 key to copy selected files and folders to the opened archive file. Total Commander recognizes that the copying operation is actually a packing operation and calls the CAR plug-in.

On the Pack files window you can set-up some properties. The most important option is the Move to archive option. If you select it then all files will be moved to the archive file. It means that after the archivation process the original files will be securely deleted.


Press OK button or ENTER to add the files.
