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.
SFTP File transfer breaks
I have been evaluating the latest version of powerarchiver and attempted to have it sftp the resulting archive to my server
This works well if I use the FTP protocol but when I attempt to use SFTP the transfer aborts around the 100 megabyte mark, not at the identical point but within a few megabytes
I have tried two different sftp server programs (Titan ftp and Globalscape) with the same results
The task is being run as a pbs file from within scheduled tasks. The powerarchiver task ends up not responding
Is this something you are aware of or can anyone confirm it works with larger transfers than this (if yes then please can you say which sftp server you are using)
thanks for the info - we need to check it out first.
please try this version and see if it helps:
We updated SFTP engine and tested it with 1.3 GB file on Titan FTP server, it worked fine.
thanks for the report!
