Download this ZIP file: http://dslstats.me.uk/files/dslstats32W-6.5.zip
Everything in the ZIP file is in a directory “dslstats32W-6.5”.
However when I extract using right click “Extract Here” the name of the directory created is “2W-6.5” !
I am running PA 22.00.09 on Windows 11. I have seen the same happen with some other kinds of archive too.
If I compress a folder to a .pa using right click, Compress to folder.pa and use the new Windows 11 menu then the Options, Configuration, Miscellaneous, Use normal relative path setting is always enabled.
But I like this option disabled so I have to use the old style menu in order to get PA to compress a folder in the way I wish.
Just tried using the Modern (Windows 10) Icon set and seeing a few missing icons in both PowerArchiver Burner and PowerArchiver Encryption screens . They are all there in the Minimalistik icon set and the only difference I can see is the former is blue and the latter grey. In version 22.00.9
there were some security issues fixed in 7zip:
As it seems, that PowerArchiver and PACL use the 7zip libraries, could you please update them to the latest version?
I noticed that the version of ZPAQ used is older than the latest released 7.15 https://mattmahoney.net/dc/zpaq.html also there seems to be a newer fork that adds several features https://github.com/fcorbelli/zpaqfranz
It would be useful to implement this latest version (it also maintains the same syntax and behavior as the latest official release if used the -715 flag) and add when opening a zpaq file a choice of the version of the files to show (e.g. as dummy folders represented the various versions present). Since any previous changes are stored with this format, it is possible to extract a snapshot of a certain date/version.
If I open a password-protected zipper file (created with WinRAR but I think that’s irrelevant), open it with PowerArchiver and run “Remove Encryption” on the same file, then reopen it and add a password with “Encrypt Archive,” the resulting archive will be protected with the old ZipCrypto algorithm and not AES as indicated.
(this can be verified, for example, by trying to open the archive files with Windows Explorer, which does not support the AES algorithm)
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.
Repair ZIP Archive…
When using Repair ZIP Archive it repairs the zip file (it says “145 out of 148 files were OK”), so that I can then open it in PowerArchiver, but when I go to extract all of the zip contents I receive two more error messages (both the same): “Unexpected end of Zip file. Probably the file is corrupted or missing spanned file.”
And in total it extracts only 90 files. Any way to extract all the files (145) it reports as being OK?
Are there any further improvements planned and/or being made to the Repair ZIP Archive tool for an upcoming release of PA? (It is a very handy tool to have.)
Thanks for any help.

what kind of damage did the zip archive endure?
The zip archive had been stored on a CDRW disc: most other zipped files on the disc extracted ok.
Regarding that first reported error message, I came across it when attempting to extract all files at once.
I have now encountered these two other pop-up error messages (applicable to several files) during my attempt to extract the files one at a time from the zip archive: “DynaZip Secure UnZip Error: Bad CRC” and “CRC Error. Continue?”
