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.
Select file deleting problem.
I dont know if this is a bug or not, but ive had this problem throughout all the powerarchiver releases ive tried 8-9.
In zome zip files whenever i try to delete a certain file a from a zip by selecting it and hitting delete it progresses but the file isnt deleted. The only way to successfuly delete the chosen file from the zip is by selecting delete and manually typing in the name of the file.
Would love to hear some feedback on this its wierd almost as if the file isnt recognized as being selected when i try to delete it…
what type of file are you trying to delete and what is the name of it and what is it. What size is it and can you post it to the forums. this will aid the developers a bit. As for the ault i have not come across it with powerarchiver only that you can’t delete the archive itself without using explorer and deleting it that way.
There was a problem with deleting feature in version 9.00.30. Can you please use “Help” -> “Check for update” and download 9.00.31 and then check.
That was it I was using the .30 version, after uninstalling it and reinstalling the new .31 everything works smooth now.
I thought I was having this problem in version 8 as well(seemed to happen with any zip file, regardless of the filename or format of the file inside when the zip was around 1mb or above) and it would push me away from using it.
Now thats fixed I’ve found my new and only archive utility.
