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.
PA queue'd 7zip compression problem
When compressing files into multiple 7zip archives using the PA Starter queue, it simply WILL NOT use Ultra compression to compress these files (everything is set correctly in config). However, if you close the Starter and right-click each file one by one and select “compress to filename.7z” without using the queue, it will then use the compression I chose.
Although PA Starter doesnt specify which compression it actually uses, it will compress a file to a size that I only get when using the Maximum setting. EI: example.7z 109.0 mb (Maximum) vs. example.7z 94.5 mb (Ultra)
that extra space is very useful to me otherwise I would just accept the maximum compression.
AT THE SAME TIME, I dont want to be waiting all my life for each file to complete before starting the next one. Id really like to use the queue if I can.
WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!?!?!? Can I somehow FORCE PA Starter queue to use the compression I specified in the config?
thanks, we will check it out….
Please check prerelease version 10.1 B1:
And let us know if this fixes your issue.
