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.
BH CRC Error in 10.00.36
Using the Shell Extension–Extract Archive to Subfolder, this is what you get with BH: (see attached screenshot)
Extract it elsewhere, and all is fine.
Convert it and extract it in the same way, and all is fine.
Sorry I didn’t notice this before!:(
Can’t reproduce with my bh files.
Is it only with that particular one or for all files you’ve tried?
Just that one, Terry – and I don’t know why?:confused:
Ah - I do :D
Create the BH with “Save Full Folder Info”
That causes the problem :cool:
Thanks Terry! I guess I can work around that.
