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.
Urgent Help Request - Archive locked!!
I am running the latest version 9.62 on XP and am a registered user.
I’m in a bind here and hope you can help. I have been using the same Powerarchiver script for backing up my source code files every day at 5pm and then uploading them to an FTP. I have encryption set on the zip file with the same password as always. But when I lost everything and downloaded the backup, it’s saying incorrect password.
I reviewed the backup script and it says the password has been set as Ö÷¿Gßc9Ö6²=ÑÁ4±A
I never typed that!!!
my password has always been my pets name with 4 numbers after it.
I tried pasting Ö÷¿Gßc9Ö6²=ÑÁ4±A into the password slot as well as the pet name and neither open this archive. How do I get into it now?!?!
that is just encrypted version of the password (it is not saved in plain text).
Few things to check:
- Make sure you are not entering letter case incorrectly
- Download file again from your ftp
It is possible that file got corrupted during upload or download. When encrypted file gets corrupted, it is impossible to recover so hopefully either password is not entered correctly or there was issue during download (make sure it is being downladed properly as binary file).
spwolf is probably right about the binary file issue.
Brad: I suspect your files may have been transferred as text instead of binary (binary mode leaves the files intact and does not attempt translation), during either upload, download, or both.
If the issue is indeed a binary/ascii conversion issue, the file might be repairable if you reverse operation, though I cannot confirm. Also, an FTP client called “32bit FTP” claims to be able to solve such problems. I have not tried it; therefore I cannot confirm or deny their claims. Neither the makers of PowerArchiver nor myself endorse “32bit FTP”; therefore, proceed at your own risk.
Lastly, be sure to backup whatever you have already transfered to your FTP server before proceeding, as the files may be recoverable, and I’m assuming the last thing you’d want is to corrupt them further.
