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.
Bug in multiple span CUSTOM 2Gb
It looks like there is still a bug when I use
OPTION: Multiple Disk Spanning at around 2 Gb (2,000,000 Kb), in PowerArchiver Version 2005 it was exactly at that size, now it’s worse, it looks like PowerArchiver bugs at any value around 2 Gb
Who knows a solution to this problem (apart from giving a 1,5 Gb value, solution which works)
this is from main PowerArchiver> New Archiver> Advanced> Custom Spanning?
Just tried this (with 7z format):
I get file sizes reported by Windows Explorer as 1.90 GB (2,048,000,000 bytes)
This is correct - 2000000 x 1kB = 2000000 x 1024 Bytes.
