SevenZip Folder sample

Source repository:

A Console application shell folder server that demonstrates how to create a non-rooted, virtual file folder using ShellBoost. The application integrates files with the .7z extension in the shell namespace, just like Windows does using .zip files.


This sample requires 7-Zip ( to be installed on the machine.

This sample uses the Squid-Box.SevenZipShar ( nuget packages as an interop wrapper over 7-Zip.

Other files than .7z could be easily handled by the sample with small code modification. In fact, all files supported by 7-Zip could be handled by the sample.
