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 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.
Encryption Zip AES
I can read a ZIP AES 256 archive, I don’t know how to create one. The receiving person says they can’t read what I send.
The Help says:
ZIP AES methods supported:
Encrypt (write) the PkZip 5.1 and PKWare Secure Zip 8.0 Single Password Strong Encryption (AES) formats for key lengths of 128, 192 and 256 bits.
I try “tools:encrypt” and am presented with *.pae which I don’t appear to be able to change.
I think I want *.zip
Then, how do I check to see that in fact the file is encrypted?
while you are creating zip, in add window, click on options tab, and then password button in the bottom right corner…
Ok – I see that now, I was not getting to this place when adding with drap and drop or from the finder.
How can I check the status of an archive – read whether and which encrytption is employed?
I have one archive that I recieved that is supposedly Zip AES 256 and i can add a file that is supposedly zip 192. How do I know how each is encoded?
When you open an archive, you will see “+” next to the filename of the file in archive.
You will not be able to see what method was used to Encryption though. Due to nature of ZIP format, each file is individual, so one archive can contain both encrypted and non encrypted files….
also, when you drag and drop files to the archive, you will see encryption options at the right corner of drag and drop window….
Ok – if I D&D into an open archive, I see this. I was dropping onto a archive file and not seeing this.
I guess that for encryption, I just have to take on faith that the file is encrypted.
you will see + next to the filename… you just wont know what encryption was used…
