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.
Tgz expansion fails
Trying to expand a tgz file that contains some .log files and a vmdk file. The tgz is 2281 MB in size.
PowerArchiver extracts the .log files, which are small, and then spends a long time creating a 0 length .vmdk file.
7-Zip extracts the tgz to a 24GB .tar file, and then PowerArchiver extracts the .tar file the same - creates the .log files and then a 0 length .vmdk file.
7-Zip extracts the .tar file into the .log files, two .vmdk files at 10GB and 14GB, and some other small files.
PowerArchiver fails the same way on a network drive and a local drive. The local drive has 1.2TB free. The C: drive (where temp is located) has 858GB free.
PA does not have support for TAR files larger than 4 GB right now, which is where the issue is. I think we will manage to add support for PA 2011.
i know this is wrong to add this but a way round it is to use a plugin like multiarchive from total commander or some other source that works witn pa’s plugin system and a commandline version of the program you require. I have tried a plugin for the latest winrar and it works better than pa’s own support. However use with caution as i have not fully tested this method properly only on files i have .
Perhaps PA 2010 should give an error message rather than fail silently?
Thanks for the reply!
We did one better - added support for unlimited size in TAR archives :)
