WinRAR 5 has a rather useful option in some cases, which is to be able to create an archive by replacing identical files with a reference to the first occurrence (hardlink) within the archive.
In case you choose to convert the file with PowerArchiver to another format, however, the resulting archive does not have all the files. It does not consider those that were present as hardlinks.
If you do a normal extraction of the RAR archive instead, even with PowerArchivier, all the files are extracted correctly.
When adding to a file archive, and selecting for example PA format, strong optimization method, extreme compression. In the Advanced Options section you change to Automatic, EXE Filter and PDF filter . You return to the main section and save the Profile. When you then reload the profile you do not have the Automatic options of EXE Filter and PDF saved there.
I noticed that instead if you change other options they are saved correctly (except for the Filter box values).
Also among the various changes to the advanced options you click the “Calculate RAM usage” button the value seems to be added to the previous one. You can see it for example just by clicking the button twice in a row, the value changes. Edit: actually after many attempts now it seems to write a stable value (it does not change with each click). Maybe a synchronization problem in the calculation?
Used PowerArchivier 2023 but there is the same behavior with the 2022
Standard or Pro version
A little while back I upgraded to the Pro version.
PowerArchiver reported a new version and I had it installed.
When checking the ‘About’ box, there is no word of ‘Pro’ or so, it is ‘just’ PowerArchiver 2009.
Then I checked the website. Both Standard and Pro are listed there, with different prices.
When clicking on ‘Download’, the following page lists the standard(??) version only.
A bit confusing…
Maybe the About-box shows no difference?
(No matter PRO or STD)
How to get hold of a Pro-version?
PowerArchiver installation package has Pro and Std versions. Features avaiable for you depend of the license key you enter. If you can see burning tools in the PowerArchiver this means you have the Pro version.
Hello to you Serhiy,
I am afraid the website is not clear on that matter.
Think that this shd at least be mentioned on the downloadpage.
So dumb people like me will not be searching for a PRO version to download… :-)
That aside, ever after entering the PRO code, the about box still shows “PowerArchiver 2009” only,
whereas I wud expect ‘PRO’ wud be mentioned.
i agree, it should be something on the website.
But don’t you see the “PowerArchiver 2009 Professional” title of the main window?
Here is how it should be:
Yep, I am sorry for the confusion. :o
It is indeed mentioned, but I have to confess I did not look thére, but only in the ‘About’-box.
I agree with wulffra - the information should also be in the About Box. That’s where I went (and pretty much always go) when I want full details on the version (both build and licensing-wise) of software installed on a machine
