PACOMP -u -r -p -o -xBackup.zip Backup.zip


  • Alpha Testers

    I am trying to backup a folder with the following command in a batch file:

    PACOMP -u -r -p -o -xBackup.zip Backup.zip *

    but PACOMP stores the filenames with not just the relative paths from the current directory but the relative paths from the directory above ( … ) which I don’t want.

    Is this a bug or am I missing something.

    Hello, IS THERE ANYBODY THERE???


  • conexware

    can you output filelist to the file and show it here so we can see what you exactly mean?


  • Alpha Testers

    Hi Brian!
    I have tried recreate your problem, but for me it’s working as expected or maybe I’m not doing exactly the same as you are. Anyway, this is what I have tried.

    I’m in the folder C:\Programs\Test which have 3 subfolders. My bat file look like this:

    PACOMP -u -r -p -o -xBackup.zip Backup.zip *
    
    

    Saved as Backup.bat in folder C:\Programs\Test

    I then run the bat file from a CMD window in the folder C:\Programs\Test

    C:\Programs\Test>Backup.bat
    
    C:\Programs\Test>PACOMP -u -r -p -o -xBackup.zip Backup.zip *

    The path looks ok for me, it’s from the current folder Test and then the subfolders. I don’t get any parent folders above the Test folder.

    @Micke:

    Hi Brian!
    I have tried recreate your problem, but for me it’s working as expected or maybe I’m not doing exactly the same as you are. Anyway, this is what I have tried.

    Thanks.

    But when you list the contents of the archive you created they are stored as, for example:

    Test\Amiga\Amiga XP x86.pdf
    

    Why would anyone want “Test” at the beginning?
    It wouldn’t be there is I’d used the GUI PowerArchiver and it’s does nothing except complicate the process of extracting the contents of the archive to any place I should want to extract it to.

    Hi!

    It looks like there is a bug in the parameter -p (store relative Pathnames), because it stores the current folder (in this case folder Test) in the path, but the correct one would be as the one in PA, who doesn’t store the current folder Test when using relative pathnames.

    When I list the contents of an archive created with PA the relative pathnames is correct.

    logged in, thanks ppl!!


  • conexware

    BTW, workaround here is to use full path to the folder for file selection and that seems to work fine…
