CRC error w/split zip in PA 11.50.61



  • I just installed V11.50.61 and created a split zip file from one of my VMware image directories (about 32GB’s worth of files). The creation process went ok, but upon trying to unzip the file or perform a zip ‘test’ process using Winzip 11, I get a crc error part way in. Let me know what other info you may require.

    TIA


  • conexware

    does it work with PA?



  • Sorry, I should have been more clear. Not only do I get a crc error in Winzip when doing a ‘test’, I get a crc error with PA when trying to unzip it.


  • conexware

    ok, and how did you create the zip file, what options did you use and what interface did you use (shell or main PA).

    thanks!



  • I right-clicked from Explorer and selected “Compress with options…”. I then only changed ‘Multiple Disk Spanning’ to ‘DVD (4.7GB)’ leaving Method at Deflate and Compression at Normal.

    When I test the zip file with Winzip, I get the following in a requester.


    WinZip

    Error in file #19: bad Zip file offset (Error local header signature not found): disk #3 offset: 365750754.

    OK Help

    When I try to unzip the file with PA, somewhere around the middle of the operation, I get an extremely wide requester with jumbled text displayed.


  • conexware

    i tried the same and it worked fine, so it might be a bit more specific that just large file.

    Can you create an screenshot of error in PA please?



  • Here is the pic.

  • conexware

    does it compressing that file without splitting work?



  • Yes, compressing the directory contents without splitting works fine.


  • conexware

    ok, let me try to reproduce it with 50 GB test case and lets see what happens.

    thanks

  • conexware

    can you try creating same archive, just via main PA window and see if that makes any difference please?

    thanks!



  • Just tried it. Same problem.


  • conexware

    Also, please try creating same archive without spanning feature. So we can see if whole - big archive is OK for the beginning.


  • conexware

    @ivan:

    he said it works, just spanning doesnt.


  • conexware

    @Activation:

    same for me the zip does not work. it all makes PowerArchiver say unusable.

    french version. (windows 7 64bits RC1 and WIndows vista 64bits SP2) I have two licence

    That’s the beta phase reserved for the English and German.
    we are left with a final unusable. awesome. just reinstall the older version 2009

    and more still no full version 64bits
    on this point, the developer 7zip should be more talented

    really disappointed :mad:

    you have to explain what exactly does not work.


  • conexware

    @AlexandrSh:

    I have the same problem with crc error in Russia version of PA 11.50.61.
    Windows Vista 32bits SP2

    can you please tell us more on how are you creating these files. Is it spanning or?


  • conexware

    can you try selecting and compressing only several of these files, maybe it is some specific file/filename that is causing it to happen and that could help us isolate the issue.

    I have tested with 50 GB archive and all went well. So it has to be a bit more specific.

    thank you!



  • I have more info, but no specifics that I feel confident will help.

    I have tried zipping and splitting large sets of files, but none cause the problem except those from my VMware sets of files, and not all of those.

    The problem appears to be related to zipping up large files that when finished, end up being near the end of the split boundary.

    Example, I had eleven vm files that were all nearly 2GB in size. If I zipped them in dictionary name order, I could repeat the error, but if I renamed them and zipped in a different order, the problem did not exist. File name length seems to have nothing to do with the error.

    Does any of this make any sense?
