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.
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.
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.
