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.
When adding to a file archive, and selecting for example PA format, strong optimization method, extreme compression. In the Advanced Options section you change to Automatic, EXE Filter and PDF filter . You return to the main section and save the Profile. When you then reload the profile you do not have the Automatic options of EXE Filter and PDF saved there.
I noticed that instead if you change other options they are saved correctly (except for the Filter box values).
Also among the various changes to the advanced options you click the “Calculate RAM usage” button the value seems to be added to the previous one. You can see it for example just by clicking the button twice in a row, the value changes. Edit: actually after many attempts now it seems to write a stable value (it does not change with each click). Maybe a synchronization problem in the calculation?
Used PowerArchivier 2023 but there is the same behavior with the 2022
Wrong position when maximising
I have my taskbar located at the top of the screen, rather than the bottom. When I maximise PA 2007 (all versions – currently 10.00.42), the window does not cover the available space, but is moved downwards in its entirety leaving a gap between the taskbar and the PA window that matches the height of the taskbar. PA’s statusbar drops off the bottom of the screen. I’ve also noticed that, unlike other programs, PA slips behind the Google sidebar when maximising.
Other things that may be relevant:
- 2 adjacent monitors, both at 1680x1050
- Google sidebar docked at the far right (tried disabling it, no effect)
- using UltraMon (tried disabling it, no effect)
- position is fine when taskbar is at the bottom of the screen
we will check it out - btw, latest version is 10.01.03…
p.s. are you using modern or classic interface?
Good point. I use the classic interface. When using modern, the positioning is correct (although it still slips behind the Google sidebar).
thats interesting, common sense says that modern is the one that shouldnt work and not classic…
and what OS?
Hadn’t really used modern since I can’t find anything anymore. Took me 3 minutes to find the way back to the classic interface :)
I’m running Windows XP SP2 (I’ve also tried using different Windows visual styles to no avail).
thanks - we will take an look for .02 and let you know if we have any questions!
