no, in solid mode you have to decompress *all* the data to get one file.
that's fine if you're going to need the majority of the data anyway, which is typically the case for romsets and I'd 1000% recommend it there as the best choice aside one or two exceptions, but it's completely not fine for things like snapshots, where you have to decompress a stupid amount of data for a single image.
using the tools available properly is important.
