I noticed that the option to add the optimize archive function to the context menu is missing on Windows 10.
Opening each archive with the interface in order to click it becomes tedious with many files.
Same for others functions like Remove Archive Encryption
It would be nice to be able to at least extract Zstandard archives.
I prefer to use light themes, and when, for example, I have set up my main archive screen to be Classic Toolbar with Blizzard Blue, files in the archive are highlighted (no checkboxes, full row select) with white text on grey background. They are easy to see .
However, in the Add screens, the files and folders are black type upon a pale blue background, which is not so readily visible, especially when highlighting separate files in lists with Ctrl/Click for addition. It would be ideal if the backgrounds to files in these screens could be set to mimic the highlighting of those in the main archive window.
I have tried experimenting with different themes and settings for skins, toolbars and so forth, but, unless I’ve missed something, none seem to give me the effect I want.
Re: Windows 11 Context menu support
It would really make me happy if you put .BH in the Windows 11 context menu. I know it’s in the “More Options” section, but this would make it more convenient. Don’t know why the option to add it to the menu isn’t there in the first place. P-L-E-A-S-E ??? :) Thanks You!
Any chance of including this format in a future release?
Exceptional compression levels.
In Windows 11 a new explorer context menu is introduced.
The “old” context menu may still be accessed through an additional mouse click, to reach the PowerArchiver context menu functions, but this isn’t comfortable at all.
Could you add PowerArchiver items to the first level (and ideally disable the Windows native ZIP entry)
I’m surprised that OneDrive for Business isn’t supported. I can’t link my company’s OneDrive account, but a personal (free) account works fine.
I’d like to propose an improvement for password protected archives.
Actual behavior is:
If I open an archive, which is password protected and make a typo in the password dialog, I’ll get the message, that the password was wrong and I end up with an empty window. I need to reopen the archive to be able to enter the password again.
Tell me, that the password was wrong and give me the chance to enter the correct password to decrypt the archive.
I know I have been asking for this feature some time ago, but as nothing has changed let me ask again:
The ZIPX-format offers an algorithm, that compresses JPEG-files by about 20-30%. Please add compression (packing) support for this in ZIPX-archives to Powerarchiver. Extraction of JPEGs packed into ZIPX by this algorithm is already supported by Powerarchiver for a long time, so it should not be difficult? Or is it a licensing problem?
Powerarchiver backup lite
it would be very nice if we could say back up a file automatically rather than clicking on the script or run from within pa. I would like it to backup the file for instance every so oftern. without user intervention to make this happen. so it is a total automated backup. Basically a tool to schedual the backup.

You can use Windows Scheduled Tasks screen to provided that function for PA Backup files.
But I can understand where you are coming from with regards to a built in funtion for PA that automates it.
Maybe its something for a future release as for such a script to work it would need to run in the background possibly using PA Starter.
THE PROBLEM WITH WINDOWS TASK MANAGER IS THAT IT HAS TO CALL POWERARCHIVER TO WORK, WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR WAS A WAY TO MAKE IT HAPPEN WITHOUT INTERVENTION OF OTHER SOFTWARE. , THIS WOULD MAKE IT EASIER AND QUICKER. aS PA SAID IT WAS AN AUTOMATIC, I RIGHTLY ASSUMED IT COULD START IT SELF BUT IT NEEDS USER INTERVENTION TO WORK. tHE TASK MANAGER CAN ONLY WORK ON EXE FILES AND AS PA’S BACKUP SCRIPT IS NOT THAT IT WILL NOT WORK THATS WHY PA MUCT ADD THIS FEATURE WHICH WOULD MAKE IT AN IDEA TOOL FOR BACKING UP FILES IN COMPRESSED FORMAT AUTOMATICALLY.
scheduling .pbs file will work great in Windows Scheduler… it is explained to the detail in the help, so please check it out…
it does solve one problem. However it does not solve the problem of over writting the file. I mean so it can create a new file with say temp01 and then one temp02 and tem03 each time it does a backup, so it doesn’t over right the first backup. It does not shutdown the computer when the backup is complete.
Sure… you can set it to use existing filename or to create new one… it is one of the pbs settings…
And of course, you can shutdown windows via taskscheduler as well.
There is no reason to have additional application doing things that Task Scheduler is already doing.
thanks for reply
Bam! Wish granted. Please look at PA 2009 Beta 1.
