In no way. In any case using HDD won’t make the process much longer.

In no way you’re wrong, there is a component. Look at torry.net.

Not much faster you say? Imagine there’s background process harassing HD intensively. I’ll knock it down and the archive will be building like a turtle. Then, do you know the fact that working with huge amount of small files causes troubles in audio playback and some other fields?
So, the archive must be RAM-resident. I must be able, for example, to rename a file inside the archive not having to extract it.

I’ve searched. Nothing.

No need to search. The ultimate thing is ZipForge from componentace.com. It does everything you want; just download it and read the readme.
