Additional paths created in archive



  • I’m creating an archive with extension .tar.gz

    PA is creating additional paths in the archive, that is, creating a path that is NOT on the local system. The pathnames, in all cases, are being named with a backslash.

    It appears to be happening for all paths, where there are no files within that path.

    This is a problem I reported in April this year, see this post

    If I use PACL to examine the archive, it reports the additional paths, for example …

    pathname1\pathname2\pathname3\pathname4\
    0 Tarred 0% 0 04/12/2007 20:29:34 00001d73

    If I use 7-Zip or PEAZIP to open the archive created by PA, they both show the additional paths in the archive.

    Any chance of this being fixed please ??

    is this happening to all paths or only if path+filename is over 99 char?

    thanks



  • @spwolf:

    It is happening to all paths that have no files.

    There were 3 paths that had no files, and PA created the archive with 3 additional paths, each path underneath those three, and they were all named backslash.

    I’m sure it is a different problem to the “length” problem.

    The length problem was occurring when extracting (uncompressing) a tar.gz, and this problem is happening when an archive is being created.

    Besides, I just checked one of those paths, and it was only 49 chars (path+filename).

    This would be easy to replicate, just create 2 paths, one with files in it, and one without files, then create an archive of tar.gz

    thank you!


  • conexware

    so it has to have 4 levels of path? can you attach example archive please?

    thanks



  • @spwolf:

    so it has to have 4 levels of path?

    Actually, a small test just showed the same error, and there were only 3 levels of paths. Here is the structure I used

    F:>dir temp\powera~1\ /s

    The folder was called ‘powerarchiver’, and I created a tar.gz of it, and yes, the same problem again. Other achivers show the extra path with a backslash, and here is the output from a verbose list from PAEXT

    PA only shows an empty path (screendump attached).

    peterr,

    The issue should be fixed in 10.20 Beta 3. Thanks!



  • Thanks Ivan. 🙂


  • conexware

    Please check with Beta 3 preview:
    http://www.powerarchiver.com/test/release10/powarc1020b3.exe

    and let us know if it works properly now.

    thanks!



  • Installed beta 3 preview, and used it to open the previously created archive, and noticed it didn’t show the path without files at all.

    Created a new archive with Beta 3 preview, and PA didn’t show the path without files.

    Here is what PAEXT showed with a verbose listing of the newly created archive patest2.tar.gz , displaying the path without files …
