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 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.
PA 2009 Pro (Beta 2) V 11.00.45
I’ve had one or two problems with this, but the most significant is that the “Move” option when writing to an archive doesn’t work i.e. the files remain visible in their original location.
This happened with an existing archive, but to prove that it hadn’t moved because the same files were already in the archive, I moved some around and created a new archive to which the files were to be moved - but they weren’t.
This comes immediately after upgrading from my PA 2007 version, which worked fine.
OS Win XP Pro SP3, machine Dell 9100.
what format did you use for move? Where in PA did you use move?
This was all done interactively i.e. not scripted or queued
1. Copy test files to folder
2. Create PA zip archive in my Archive folder
3. Move files with these options
- Add folder
- Do not store paths
Action = Move, Normal compression
Check-Inc subdirs, write directly, use deflate64
Result - files loaded to zip but left in source folder
Also tested with write direct and deflate 64 unchecked
I have also tried adding files (not folder) but no difference.
Note also that the files are not compressed or encrypted.
so it is zip format…. are you using shell extensions or main PA to create zip?
and you are using advanced add window? not standard window?
Can you disable advanced add window and try with standard?
I’m using PA direct and not the shell.
I’ve just turned off Advanced Add option and had another go, but no change i.e. files still left in source folder.
I’ve just downloaded the latest beta 3 version and note the following:-
1. the Advanced Add window now offers only “Move” or “Add and replace” options.
2. The “Move” option now seems to be working i.e. the source files are deleted.
