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.
Strange thing happening with my zip files
I have a strange thing happening the last couple of days with my Power Archiver 2007; all was working well then,
When I send a zip file it has a bunch of empty folders each one taking a name from the file path then the last one will have the contents in, Example folder name
D:\My Documents\My Pictures\holiday snaps, when I zip it it’s a single folder named (holiday snaps)
But when it’s opened you get a folder named My Documents with a folder in it called My Pictures with a folder in it called holiday snaps with the pictures in!
Ideas about what I am doing wrong & solving the problem appreciated,
Welcome to PowerArchiver forums!
Please make sure that you have unchecked the “Save full folder info” checkbox in the Add window while creating your ZIP archive… (in case you use PA’s Explorer Shell Extensions).
Or please choose “Store relative paths” in the Add dialog if you add files from the main PowerArchiver window.
Thank you Serhiy I will go and try these things now,
you simply had full path option on, which will save full folder structure of your files. Serhiy to the rescue ;-)
