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 22.00.09 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.
.PAE file won't open
I have encrypted a .zip file to a .pae file with Power Archiver 6. Now I had to update to Power Archiver 7, and for some reason everytime I try to open it, it asks for the password, I enter it, shows ‘Decrypting file’ and the percentage completed and freezes at 3% . Always 3%. I don’t have any idea why this is happening, the file doesn’t seem to be corrupted, and I’ve only encrypted it since I had precious information in it. Can’t really afford to lose it.
can u post the file here.
Secondly can u reinstall the last version of pa that you created it in and try and open it, if it opens ok in that version then the file is not corrupt and it then definately has to be powerarchiver that is the problem.
davidsplash firstly I would like to Thank you for your quick reply.
After sending the email I had tried uninstalling Power Archiver and use exactly the previous version I had. Once again, Power Archiver literally jams up at 3% and I’ll be forced to end its task. From what I’m seeing it looks like it’s a corrupted file, but I haven’t got the slightest idea why it would corrupt so easily, since I had never had such a problem on the current HD.
As much as I would like to send you the .pae file I’m afraid it contains sensitive data, besides the fact that it is 500MB in size…. I’m not really sure what to do, any help would be appreciated.
If the file is corrupted, then there is no way you can recover it, since it is encrypted file.
You can try installing older version, but I dont think that it would help anything.
