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.
Extract single file from an archive.
Using PA BETA 10.00.13
I can’t seem to extract an individual file from an archive if Add to Queue is selected, but when it’s unselected it operates as it should. Is this the way it should be ?
Don’t really understand the Queue option in this new version of PA at all. :o
Maybe a bit more information about it’s function and how it works could be added to the help file.
Or how about and idiots guide just for me.;)
I am not sure if queue works on settings other than all files.
It is very simple concept, whatever you do in PA, gets added into the queue… so if you select compression of 300 MB folder, and extraction of 55 MB archive, they get added to the queue and PA process’s them one after another, not two in the same time.
That leaves your computer responsive to do whatever else you want to be doing, since doing several hard disk operations at the same time would slow it down to crawl…
That helps my understanding of it.
also, right now it works on add/extract (both main PA and shell) and backups. It doesnt work on tools, since we are assuming that you would want it done right away.
You can also set minimum size for it to work, and it is at 10 MB right now - so if you want to quickly extract small archive, it will be done right away…
PowerArchiver Queue doesn’t support extracting few files from archive (only all files).
But I will make for Beta 3 one workaround that unchecks “Add to Queue” if user selected files and “Add to Queue” is checked by default.
