I maybe wrong here...but I think I made a mistake and ARC files are just LZ-10 compressed files and the 'darc' header belongs to the BCMA manual files.. I will update as soon as I'll find out...If this is true then the files in the darc format are not compressed. --Elisherer 21:00, 29 November 2012 (CET)

DARC with LZ-11 compression is used for a number of other things besides the instruction manuals, like ExeFS:/.logo. --Yellows8 21:37, 29 November 2012 (CET)
The problem with that the I "opened" the bcma file 3dsguy uploaded (which is a DARC file) and inside it there were 4 'arc' files which were 4 'darc' files compressed with LZ-10. After that I decompressed them and "opened" them and there were no more compressed files in them. So I must agree that DARC files are just containers and have nothing to do with compression (although it is used often as such). --Elisherer 12:42, 30 November 2012 (CET)
