Re: fast MFT scanner recursion

I've uploaded wimlib v1.13.3-BETA1 which contains the optimization you suggested to avoid unnecessarily falling back to a recursive scan. Can you try it out?

Re: export newest / last image only

No, this isn't currently supported, except in the special case of the --update-of option. FWIW, I've wanted to implement this, but it's a bit difficult since wimlib-imagex uses the getopt_long() function to parse its command-line arguments, and getopt_long() considers anything beginning with "-" to ...

Re: fast MFT scanner recursion

1. I think I did it that way just because it was simpler, and at the time not many directories on a default Windows install had object IDs (or otherwise triggered using the recursive scan). It's possible that Windows has changed to start assigning object IDs to more directories and as a result the c...

Re: compression chunk size variation for the XPRESS type

No, the minimum XPRESS chunk size is 4096 bytes.

Using 2048-byte chunks would probably make it slower, not faster.

Re: Wim To ESD & ESD To Wim is always heavy for me ?

It's expected that creating a solid-compressed WIM takes a long time and uses all CPUs (or however many threads you set). It's very computationally intensive.

Re: Possible bug in parsing of LZX headers

What wimlib does is correct for WIM files. There could be other variants of LZX though.

Re: Wimlib capture slow compared to acronis backup

With --compress=XPRESS:20, compression shouldn't be a bottleneck at all. You might have better results with a higher compression setting, e.g. --compress=XPRESS, --compress=LZX:20, or even the default of --compress=LZX. You could also try changing the number of threads (--num-threads). But if that d...

Re: Is there any method ignore onedrive and continue to capture

If you're using the --source-list option to capture all these drives at once, then I don't think there's any way to do that currently, as the excluded paths are always matched relative to each top-level directory being captured. But if you're using a separate wimlib-imagex command to capture each dr...

Re: wimlib-imagex : custom temp folder ?

wimlib hardly ever uses temporary files, so choosing a different temporary directory wouldn't actually matter.
