PowerArchiver creates @LongLink in Archives ?



  • Hi,

    everytime i want to unpack a Backup Archiv of my Website (including Mambo CMS or PostNuke) with PowerArchive i get a error.

    Example :

    If there is a Link in the Archive that is very long PowerArchiver can´t handel and unpack the whole Archive. He stops and creats a File named @LongLink.

    If i open it with a Editor i see in it

    ./postnuke/pnTemp/pnRender_compiled/Xanthia^SeaBreeze^eng^%%52^52C^52C3DF3D%%xanthiaadminmenu.htm.php

    as Example.

    How can that be ? With WinRAR it isn´t a Problem.

    It can´t be a Problem of my Backuparchiv. It also happens with the original Archives like PostNuke-0.750.zip or the one from Mambo CMS.

    PowerArchiver does not support TAR archives with longlinks, which is what does not work. Basically, @longlink is used to make TAR files with filename+pathname bigger than 100 characters.

    We will introduce this in one of the future revisions of PowerArchiver, I hope.

    regards,



  • This Error does not only appera at *.tar Archives. It apperas at *.zip and *.rar Archives too.

    So i have to use WinRAR for such Archives ?? That has to be a Joke ! 😞

    I dont know what exactly are you reffering to, but longlinks only exist in TAR archives, they do not exist in RAR or ZIP archives. PowerArchiver will work perfectly fine with both zip and rar archives…

    I just downloaded PostNuke Phoenix 0.750 Gold (.zip) from
    http://downloads.postnuke.com/pafiledb.php?action=category&id=45

    This was unzipped by PA 9.02.01 with no errors on Win98.

    Again - ZIP does not make @LongLink files, only certain TAR utilities make them for the purpose of extending TAR path+filename lenght above 100 characters. Those files are actually included in the TAR file, so they exist there. PA currently does not support them and hence it does not read them (again in TAR files only).

    Only reason for them existing in ZIP file would be that someone converted TAR file or compressed them as well as rest of the files…



  • My only question is : When will it support them ? All others do it (winzip, winrar etc.) … it´s so frustrating.



  • Hello ?

    I payed Money for this Software - can the Support answer please ??

    Every OpenSource Archiver can handle this and i didn´t see why the one i buyed can´t .

    Hope my english isn´t to bad. If so - is anyone here that can speak german ?

    We already said it will be done in one of the future revisions - and also that it only happens with TAR archives, not zip archives.

    You english is just fine… Hopefully we will be able to include it in 9.2 release!



  • Thank you for your Answer. 😃
    This sounds better :

    Hopefully we will be able to include it in 9.2 release!

    as before :

    We will introduce this in one of the future revisions of PowerArchiver, I hope.

    😉

    Well, it is pretty much the only “big” problem with PowerArchiver and is out of our hands so we will put it back into our hands and solve it - but it takes time…

    thanks,



  • Yeah but only for understanding - can you describe me in simple Words why the free TUGZip and ZipGenius can handle it ?

    Because they use different TAR components that we dont use?



  • Any updates on a fix for this problem yet?


  • conexware

    Yes, as we already announced few times ago, this bug will be fixed for 9.1. Version 9.1 will be avilable in the beginning of the next week.
