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.
Directory properties inheritance
Whenever I drag a file from an archive in a PA window, and drop it into a compressed directory, the extracted file is never compressed. I always have to manually compress the extracted file(s) afterward.
When I do the same using WinRAR, the file is compressed properly. This is as expected since the file(s) should inherit the compressed flag from the directory.
Isn’t this a semi-serious problem? I often extract to compressed folders, and I’m constantly having to manually compress the files after I’ve extracted them.
what exactly do you mean by a compressed folder?
in Windows explorer or within an archive in PA?
I’m talking about extracting files from PA to directories that have NTFS compression enabled. When I do this with PA, the files do not become (NTFS) compressed automatically, as they should. When I drag from WinRAR–same file, from the same archive, to the same directory–the files are compressed as they should be.
I’ll see if I can create a video of this…
Here’s a video (in a 7-Zip archive) that shows it very clearly. Note that I had to give the attached file (which, again, is actually a 7-Zip archive) the XLS extension in order to post it, because of the forum attachment size limit configuration. Obviously, change the extension to 7Z to make it work.
The default video size may not be ideal. On my system, I have to maximize the video window to see it clearly.
This was extremely easy to reproduce it. While I used PA, I encountered this every day.
i should have said we reproduced it long time ago :-). Sorry for the trouble.
