Not handling multi-part .rar archives properly



  • v10.10.09

    If you have a multi-part .rar archive which is using the ‘old style volume names’ i.e.:

    my_archive.r00
    my_archive.r01
    my_archive.r02
    my_archive.r03
    my_archive.r04
    my_archive.r05
    my_archive.r06
    my_archive.r07
    my_archive.r08
    my_archive.r09
    my_archive.r10
    my_archive.r11
    my_archive.r12
    my_archive.rar

    …and you right-click my_archive.r00 or my_archive.r01 (both file extensions are associated with PA) and choose to ‘Extract Here’ - PA just bombs out.

    However, if you right-click my_archive.rar and choose to ‘Extract Here’ - PA handles that file extension fine and will extract the archive contents to the current directory.

    Can you allow PA to do the same for *.r00 and *.r01 files?

    hmm…v10.10.09???



  • 10.10.09 is a test version of beta 2.
    So it is not available via Update (at least not yet).
    Check other threads if you must try it.

    alphas are not posted as betas until they become betas… so no, you wont see that version up on the site until we think it is ready.



  • Some more info to report about this:

    If you have a 2-piece multi-part archive e.g.:

    my_archive.r00
    my_archive.rar

    …and you right-click my_archive.r00 and select Power Archiver 2007 > Extract Here, you’ll get an error message stating that there was a CRC error, continue?

    If you do this with the my_archive.rar file it extracts the archive contents to the current directory, as expected.

    If you have a larger multi-part archive and try to extract from the *.r00 or *.r01 file then PA just crashes without giving the CRC error popup.

    It seems to not be loading all parts of a multi-part archive during extraction unless you begin with the *.rar file.

    This should be fixed in latest version:
    http://www.powerarchiver.com/test/release10/powarc1010.exe

    Please let us know…

    thanks!



  • I tested extracting from both the *.r00 and *.r01 file from a couple different multi-part archives and it worked ok. Before this was reproducible every time so this seems to be fixed. I’ll advise if I notice it again and give details. Nice job on the fix btw.
