Question about intentionally duplicating data

Hi all,

I was reading through a post mentioning duplicate .bik files and I was wondering if it's possible to instruct a compressor or during the installation phase to duplicate/extract/decompress File A in Location A as well as Location B.

I'd assume if this was possible, this instruction would be inside the script of the installer but as I'm very new to this compression scene I'm unsure.

If you put all dupe files in one archive with no paths, you can then extract the archive once to path A then path B.

Or, you can just write a batch file to copy all duplicated files in path A to path B and run it using Exec2

I didn't even think about using a separate archive, that sounds like a great idea! I was considering using a simple batch script but I want installation to be as hassle-free for the end-user, as unfortunately there exists a minority of users, which while small, do exist, that are a bit technologically illiterate. It's these users I want to ensure have the easiest time installing.
