Support for "cpio" archives?

  • I was wondering if anyone knows if “cpio” files can be opened with PA? I have to review multiple “cpio” archives each month and it is tedious extracting the files and them viewing the contents. I have tried switching to “tar” but being able to select files from a subdirectory to backup does not seem to be a “tar” feature. The cpio files are compresses and PA can uncompress the rchive but can not extract the files from it (at least I have not a way). Any suggestion would be appreciated (The cpio files were generated on cygwin, Linux, AIX, HP/UX, Solaris and Digital UNIX with the “-c” standard headers).

    PowerArchiver does not support cpio files currently… In the future? Possibly.
