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.
I created a new ZIP archive and opened it. Now I added differnt files from different directories with the optin relative directories (I have the german version and don’t know the translation in english – it is the left option in the add dialog). In the main PA window are no path dispalyed (if I use the option complete directories, all informations are displayed).
After unpacking the files where all in one directory. Is it a bug … ???
Thanks for helping
you need to enable option: Config> Misc> Use normal path.
and it should work as you suggested.
Hallo, I tried like you discribed… but it don’t works! I changed the option in the attachment disppalys. I also checked the help, but this option is missing in the help.
thanks for helping
can you detail more info on what exactly are you doing?
1. I start PA.
2. I say New
3. I create a new archive in the following directory : D:\Projekte\SB\EExport2\Deutsch\FSC\EExport2 called UP060528.zip
4. I add a file from a subdirectory of the created zip archive ( D:\Projekte\SB\EExport2\Deutsch\FSC\EExport2\Daten ).
5. After adding the file to the archive the the sub directory \Daten will not displayed.
6. If I unpack the archive, is in the main unpacking directory.
Thanks for helping
if you are adding file alone, then relative path will not be saved, because there is no relative path.
You are adding file:
Its root folder is:
So there is no relative path to add.
If you were adding:
Then root would be:
and path Daten would be stored for test.txt. Relative path is never created based on where you create the archive, since that could be anywhere…
