7-zip date of extracted files



  • Using latest PowerArchiver 11.62.03 to extract 7z archives all files have the time as extraction as last modified time.
    I don’t have this issue with zip and rar files. I’m using Windows XP SP3.

    Hi!
    I’m using PowerArchiver 11.62.04 in Windows XP SP3 and I almost got the same result as you do.

    Extraction of 7z archives

    Created and Modified date is set as the date and time of extraction

    Extraction of zip archives

    Created date is set as the same date as Modified date when the file is extracted. When I compare it with the original file, the created date is changed and set as the same date as modified date.

    Kind Regards
    Micke

    The only thing I get is that the date created is the date when extracted. Date modified stays ok.

    anyone else?



  • Using PA to create 7z and then extract I do get the dates changed. After extracting both modified and created are set to today.

  • I recently noticed the same behavior. However, unless I am mistaken, this is of fairly recent vintage (I an currently running the latest posted version).

    I do not believe that this was PA’s behavior late last year – and perhaps even earlier this year. I am confident that I would have noticed it.

    Hi!
    It looks like me, the thread starter and TBGBe all get the same result when extracting 7z archives. The other common thing is that all 3 of us are running Windows XP with Sp3. It would be interesting to know if someone that’s running Vista or Win7 could reproduce this.

    Kind Regards

  • happens on W7 too. so it’s not related to OS



  • Even with zipx archives, the CREATION date reflects when the file was extracted, although the MODIFIED date is correct (it is the same date as the file that was added to the archive).

    In contrast, with Winzip, both the creation and modifed date remain as they were when the archive was created, although the extracted file does show that the file was ACCESSED when it was extracted.

    it might be “recent” only if you were using old version before ;-). We will be checking it out in the future.



  • I could be mistaken, of course. However, I am reasonably confident that I would have noticed this behavior had PA been doing this for the past year.

    So I would have thought that in 11.5 – or even the original 11.6 – that this was not the regular behavior.

    I might well have some earlier versions around. If I do, perhaps I will try them and report back.
