Win 11 64 bit
I have some archives which have been encrypted, using the encrypt option either in pbs or when interactively creating a zip. When I open these, and look at files, I am asked for passwords, which I know, and then can view items or decrypt the files in the archive (tools>decrypt files).
However, when I use the Actions>Remove Archive Encryption (whether using the same zip or asking to write another), the routine shows progress bar to the end, but then just hangs i.e. “OK” never activates. All process information shows this stalled/hanging.
What can I do to sort this out?
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)
PowerArchiver 2011 - Pro - No Export
I must say I quite like 2011, it does seem a little faster than 2010.
I do like the ftp client integration, however am disappointed to see there are no options to export configuration.
As a IT Pro I do like to format my system on a regular basis, esp with doing all the beta testing that I do.
If export configuration could be given consideration to be included within the next few updates that would be really great as it would save me and possibly others installing 2 ftp clients.
Keep up the improvements :)
Exporting as in?
Keep in mind you can export/import full PA settings from Options menu!
I was predominately thinking of with the FTP Profiles options: As Per Attached Screenshot.
I must admit I was not aware until searching fully the interface that the Configuration button was split into 2!
I find that very strange, and embarrassing!
Personally I have previously expected/used a single click on the top of configuration (and via the orb configuration) to access all that I thought were the full options. I have now found the save/import options you mentioned - that I had expected to be listed in the main configuration dialogue list - in the separate drop down list.
I think as a suggestion it would be nice to see those options included in the ‘orb’ drop down menu, and/or fully integrated with all the other configuration options.
Liking the new version, nice to see the GUI has been kept nice and clean :)
question is, where to put them? i agree that they are a lot more visible in classic interface but Orb is already quite busy and they will be equally lost in Config?
Agree that less under the orb the better.
Personally I think that most people who would be interested in importing/exporting settings would look in the configuration options.
I don’t think having a import/export settings would be out of place located within these options.
It could also then be viable to add under where you already automatically expand the ftp configuration settings to possibly add import/export profiles as an option.
Just a few ideas I think could enhance a great product.
Or maybe Import/Export as one of the Tools?
Or (stretching a bit) under Backup - to back up PowerArchiver ;-)
