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.
PA Backup Express Lite Glitch
Using PA Backup Express Lite with .bh compression has a glitch. It can produce a new backup archive, but will not replace an existing backup. The existing backup is deleted, but the new one does not takes its place. I have found this true only for those PA Backup Express Lite .bh files. The others seem to work properly. Thanks!
i can’t see why this is not working though i have not tested it yet i have looked at the process in detail and have found out that the backup uses the compression and turns it into a backup. replacing the back up made earier. is the backup name the sma e is the archive name the same. use in the backup?
it could be that the compression in the express lite is calling the bh compression incorrectly thats if no backup is made and is by standard deleting the backup already there, which it does before a backup is made.
It should only delete a backup if a backup is created sussefully.
I hope they fix this soon.
what computer are u using xp 98 etc. have you tried this in safe mode as it can be something loded into memory that can cause this fault. Just qa thought.
can u post the bh file your trying to backup just in case its that file which is a problem. Does not happen to all bh files created.
Happens on both XP Home Edition and XP Professional. Does not matter what file I use. As long as it is .bh, it will delete the existing file and replace it with nothing. Haven’t tried it in safe mode yet.
can you please take a bit more care when you are writing - it is sometimes really hard to read your posts and it confuses the matter greatly.
Charles, you are correct about bh - thanks for the report.
what i meant to say the backup creates a new bh file and should replace other one. (over write it).
If it does not then it will not be created. but it might already of deleted the bh file aleadry there cause it has too in order to make way for the new bh file
