Crc errors?

  • Alpha Testers

    Common placed errors I know when dealing with compression but does anyone have any info as to why I’m now seeing more of them since updating
    to latest version of PA and vista home premium?

    I’ve never had a problem in the past with them no matter what settings I use but since saving my vital files from my xp system and then trying to extract them onto a new hard drive in vista I’m now encountering the crc errors all to often.

    just wondered if I was missing something obvious here.

    thanks in advance.


  • Do you have any examples of these errors? eg error log’s, Screen Dumps of those error dialogs? what the size of the files are?

    This will help PA Gain an idea of what the fault is.

    no sorry Richard…not something I generally bother with is keeping error logs and such.
    2 of the zip files in question were slightly over 100 meg…
    I was able to retrieve some date but lost more than half of vital information…fortunately for me I had them burnt to a cd which I discovered a day later…phew!

    not much more info I can give you really…
    just wondered if it was a vista issue with the new powerarchiver.

    Hi Moles,

    check your hard drive and make sure it is not going bad… It shouldnt have anything with Vista itself.

    it better not be going bad…lol
    only just had this system built for me with SATA drives.
