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 am using PowerArchiver 2004, not sure if this is fixed in PA2006. But this is a problem that really should be addressed.
In PA2004, if I try to add more than one folder at a time, it seems to put each set of files into their correct relative folders (yes I have checked Save relative Folder Info). This only seems to actually appear when I use View->Explorer Style, but it does indeed seem to work.
The problem is if I try to add just one folder. In this case, PA does not save that top level folder path! It thinks “hey there is only one top folder to save so i don’t need to save that folder name in the path.”
When I want to drag a folder into a ZIP archiver, I ALWAYS want that top level folder name saved! This is default behavior in WinZip and should be default behavior in PA.
Is there any way around this?
yes… download PA 2006, and use “Normal relative path” in Config> Misc.
