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.
Bug in the Archive Converter
I’m using PowerArchiver 2010 Free 11.63.12 and I found a bug using the Archive Converter tool. If the destination folder does not exist (like a removable drive path which has been removed), PowerArchiver will convert the archive without any warning or error and place it on the original archive’s folder.
thanks, we will check it out…
When it comes to non existing folders, PA will create the folder and place the converted archive there.
make sure you have selected to store the file in Custom folder as Current folder is selected by default.
In terms of non existing drives(unplugged USB drives), PA stores the file in the default PA installation folder, should probably give an error that selected drive does not exist.
Yes, give an error (and allow drive to be added to try again).
Don’t automatically save to different drive/dest.
Saving to “alternate destination” (except for temporary stuff) should only be after user approval.
yep, logged in.
