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.
WinRAR 5 has a rather useful option in some cases, which is to be able to create an archive by replacing identical files with a reference to the first occurrence (hardlink) within the archive.
In case you choose to convert the file with PowerArchiver to another format, however, the resulting archive does not have all the files. It does not consider those that were present as hardlinks.
If you do a normal extraction of the RAR archive instead, even with PowerArchivier, all the files are extracted correctly.
When adding to a file archive, and selecting for example PA format, strong optimization method, extreme compression. In the Advanced Options section you change to Automatic, EXE Filter and PDF filter . You return to the main section and save the Profile. When you then reload the profile you do not have the Automatic options of EXE Filter and PDF saved there.
I noticed that instead if you change other options they are saved correctly (except for the Filter box values).
Also among the various changes to the advanced options you click the “Calculate RAM usage” button the value seems to be added to the previous one. You can see it for example just by clicking the button twice in a row, the value changes. Edit: actually after many attempts now it seems to write a stable value (it does not change with each click). Maybe a synchronization problem in the calculation?
Used PowerArchivier 2023 but there is the same behavior with the 2022
Bug: Unknown archive properties in PA 9.02
converning archive properties
Ver. to extract
Ver. made by
are always set as unknown, even on ZIP archives which are made by PA itself.
Can anyone confirm this error?
Same problem here, Klumy! :rolleyes:
not an error, version info is only shown for RAR archives. I think there is already an wishlist item for more info in properties and it will be done for 9.1… fair enough?
thanks for the info spywolf ;)
but the Host OS is still Unknown even on RAR archives. :(
As to host os, it is probably valid for some other type of archives. Basically, we left categories in there even if they are not available for that specific archive.
As said previously, 9.1 will make it look nice :-)
