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.
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.
Clear History button
it doesn’t clear the “extract files” list.
The issue should be fixed in Beta 3. Extract files list should be reset to default state where first directory is User’s Documents folder.
It would be nice if there was an option in PA 2007 to select if you want to keep history and if so how many lines of history up to 10??
I personaly Don’t like programs that keep a history of Usage as it enables others to trace back. Not good when you work for the goverment :D
Grant I clear it every day before I leave, but if I had the option I wouldnt need to and neither would anyone else who also required a secure history.
I have been using the Set Installation Defaults frequently to reset the extract list to default state but it also resets everything else back to defaults and I lose all the configurations. It also resets back to classic mode.
As I mentioned before maybe we need to add an Options for the Clear History Button. But now to select what gets cleared if anything as well.
3. Recent Backup’s
5. Saved Passwords (Yes/No) Option
And any other areas that can effect the userbility of PA.
Fixed in b3.04. It clears the list.
bump for what? clears or not?
