So you’re just NEVER going to tell me how to do it???
If you use Options> Export to local file, it seems like everything gets saved.
Can you tell me what settings did not get restored for you via Cloud?
Nice idea spwolf, as part of any R&D this will be a valued and welcome tool in order to assist Powerarchiver maintain an already excellent customer service and in theory enable conexware to role out important fixes/patches faster with less impact to the end user.
7-Zip Optimized Compression in PowerArchiver
What is it?**
From PowerArchiver 2009, we have added feature called Optimized 7-Zip compression. This feature is currently unique to PowerArchiver 2009.
With Optimized Compression we have tried to solve one of the most important issues that 7-Zip has when compared to ZIP and RAR formats, which is speed and automatic detection of content being compressed.
What does it do?
With Optimized compression feature on, PowerArchiver tries to smartly detect files that are being compressed and assign special compression methods to improve either speed or compression. In the case of text files, it automatically uses PPMd compression for them (instead of LZMA) which has a lot better compression ratio and is also faster. For files that can not be compressed further, it uses different LZMA settings to speed up compression without losing compression strenght. It also works great with solid setting on, which is reccomended as not only it increases compression strenght but also speed as well.
Results are double the compression strenght on text files, and double the speed on files that can not be compressed (mp3, avi, mpeg, etc). Obviously these are the best case scenarios, and in real life usage it depends on data that you are trying to compress.

Very nice initiative! Hope all software companies follow this approach to motivate users implication during develpment stages.
thank you, many users already got theirs!
Hope I could get mine, hehe
@pirrbe said in Archives .pa or Backupscripts .pa conflicts with open Office files:
@spwolf it is for ‘Archive’ and also when using ‘Backup’ Script .pbs through PA dashboard
thanks for the sending all the extra info via support system, we will be checking this out soon!
@john said in File explorer messed up:
Sorting is fixed, could you fix the second problem too?
I need to scroll the list first to be able to type and find the files/folders
can you open up a new thread for that please with one screenshot of the screen thats causing you problem, to make sure we understand where is that happening and I will respond there, thank you!
edit: opened new thread here:
@john I understand what the issue is, and have identified the cause - internally we have an option of smart refresh option for file list window of external explorer interface (when browsing hdd) and that will refresh only visible part of the screen. When I activate full refresh, it seems to be just fine.
As to the focus, got it… we will check rest of the windows too. Thanks.
@shahin it does not work (well) in this fast toolbar unfortunately, option was left over from previous versions of PA. It is a trade off between speed and features.
If there becomes a way to implement it back, we shall.
@spwolf there was an update to .31, to add compatibility for onedrive folders (as well as other similar) that was lost in last few build since we re-wrote the shell. So just redownload and it shall work!
@shahin said in Taskbar Progress Bar:
every time opening PowerArchiver a folder named “PowerArchiver 2018 (64-bit) (Unregistered)” is created in “C:\Users*\AppData\Roaming”. what’s this?
p.s. if you dont have PA 2018 license yet, let us know via support at conexware.com, you will get one for bug reporting, or extension of select plan. Thanks!
@drteeth said in PA 18.00.23 Column configuration:
Whilst configuring the columns in the archive window, I noticed a couple of annoying things. The first is that the columns have the same colour as the rest of the window. I prefer to have my column headers if not a different colour to be at least delineated by a dark colour. The other thing is that when I deselect a column header so I will not see it, it does not disappear like in other programs I have used, it just closes to nothing. This is annoying as when adjusting column widths, they get in the way and I find myself stumbling across them.
i think it pulls the color from the system… did you check some other skins by any chance? They outline the headers.
@aluminumhaste said in PA 2018 bug - can't select Cancel or Pause with mouse:
I just tested again and only the Enter key works, Spacebar doesn’t do anything either.
Usually the extraction to temp folder goes so fast you don’t need to worry about it.
i know this is how it works and is fast, but we still logged it in for checking out… will update once we do.
