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.
I used the tutor1.zip archive for this test. I have two issues here
firstly when u add a file to this (i added an image) and made it aes 128 encrypted just that file when adding it. Try deleting just that file and then readd it to the archive with encryption disabled and you will find that it is added to the archive with encryption, even though this time you didn’t ask for it. Only way to solve this is to close the whole archive and reopen it. even if you just wanted to change the password of that file.
when will this be fixed?
secondly when deleting an encrypted file from an archive it lets you delete the file but still comes up with the password dialog asking for passwpord of that file after that file has been deleted
there is no screenshot attached…
too many screens to include but if you follow these simple steps you can reproduce it
open tutor1.zip (powerarchiver sample zip)
add a file with compression (aes128)
to this zip give it a password
delete the encrypted file from tutor1.zip
then readd to tutor1.zip and make sure you have encryption disabled when adding it to the tutor1.zip
you will find that it adds it encrypted to tutor1.zip even though you have not added it to tutor1.zip encrypted.
this any help
adding more details ot my last post
if you add another file after deleting the passworded file file from the archiver and then readd the file you have just deleted to the archive again, it adds encryption to that file even if its disabled on the options.
only work round is to exit the archive and renter it.
this is a pain as the only way to change password is to delete the passwored file and then exit the archive and reopen the archive and readd the file.
couldn’t we fix this so we can delete the file and then be allowed to add it unencrpted or not with or without new password.
still not fixed in latest beta
