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.
I originally purchased PowerArchiver 2002 for its ability to read UNIX compressed archives. Why has this feature been removed from PowerArchiver 2004? I saw on a previous post from August that this is considered a ‘Wish List’ feature. If a feature existed before why is it a ‘wish list’ now?
In general features should be added to new versions, not removed.
Any insight would be great.
Can you expand a little?
To me “Unix” compression refers to either TAR or Gzip.
Both are supported. I am not aware of any format for which support has been withdrawn since PA2002 :confused:
Sorry for being vague…
Compressed UNIX files with the extention of .Z
Well. according to http://filext.com/detaillist.php?extdetail=Z
that is a TAR / TAR.Gzip file
PA associations links .z to Tar.gz
Is this not correct - at least in your case?
Hey again Terry!
Where the confusion lies is the specific brand of UNIX I work with is AIX and specifically the compress command. On AIX the command pack creates archives with the lowercase .z and compress creates files with uppercase .Z. Powerarchiver 2002 read and uncompressed these files flawlessly. It’s only in the new edition where it it won’t handle these types of files.
When we changed to new TAR component for 9.00, we lost support for .z files. It will be returning in upcoming 9.1 release…
