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.
How to create an empty folder within an archive
Is there a way to create a new (empty) directory in an existing archive? And no, I’m not trying to archive an empty folder, I’m trying to set up a directory structure within a new archive so that I can then add files. I was looking for the equivalent to the Windows explorer method: right-click -> new -> folder
I have a large directory tree of source code files and I want to put some of them into an archive. I do not want to necessarily archive everything in a given sub-directory, so I want to be able to create the folder structure in the archive and then selectively add files. Once this is complete I will use the freshen option to update the archive.
Thanks for your help…
you could drag&drop an empty folder from the harddisk to this archive
I wanted to avoid creating a folder structure in Windows just to copy it into the archive (and then being left to delete the folders from Windows).
Maybe its a setting that I can change, but when I drag an empty folder into an archive it does not show up. This seems like an appropriate action which should keep an archive clean of empty directories.
What I’m looking for is a way to directly modify the directory structure of the archive.
Thanks for the suggestion, masu.
currently you have to create it first on your hard drive… you can use Move (instead of Add) and it will delete those files from the HD.
You need to enable normal relative path option in Options> Misc for storing of root folders….
