PA 21.00.18 running on Windows 7 64 bit.
I made a big .PA file and thought I’d check it was made correctly with Menu / Actions / Test.
a) PA always issues a UAC prompt to do this!
b) PA always says there are many errors in PA files.
WinRAR 5 has a rather useful option in some cases, which is to be able to create an archive by replacing identical files with a reference to the first occurrence (hardlink) within the archive.
In case you choose to convert the file with PowerArchiver to another format, however, the resulting archive does not have all the files. It does not consider those that were present as hardlinks.
If you do a normal extraction of the RAR archive instead, even with PowerArchivier, all the files are extracted correctly.
CCleaner and PA
if you install and run the program form http://www.ccleaner.com/
You will see that PA is in the list. My question is, why does it have PA in the list? Does PA leave temp files behind? Does anybody have any idea?
i suggest checking the features - it cleans everything, even MRU lists, etc, so every program in the world could be there…
this is what it cleans:
RegKey11=HKCU\Software\PowerArchiver\Files|Last open dir
RegKey12=HKCU\Software\PowerArchiver\Files|Last backup dir
RegKey13=HKCU\Software\PowerArchiver\Files|Last add dir
Not that big of a deal.
it is MRU list, PA does not leave these behind when you uninstall. It could be for privacy reason that you want them deleted while you still have PA installed.
