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.
PAOP - only compresses one file
If I attach multiple files, PAOP compresses only the last inserted file. For instance, if attach three files, two are attached in their original format; the third is compressed according to PAOP settings; and the help file is attached.
what kind of files are they? (extensions?)
It might be a bit more specific - i tried 6 files, and 4 were compressed while 2 were not due to 10kb size limit.
I assumed the size limitation governed the total size of the set of files, not each file individually.
Perhaps you could add this as a feature.
If I have 20 files, all but one smaller than the PAOP minimal filesize, it would be nice if PAOP still compressed all as long as, taken together, they were larger than the minimal filesize.
We will have to rethink this a bit nyway.
1. Default value of 10kb limit. Is it needed? Even if file is small, send 1000 of them and savings are significant. Maybe leave this limit at 0kb in the future?
2. Do we even need two ways to count the limit? Counting all together should be sufficient (we will check if we can reasonably do it though).
I would propose count the size or all attachments; I don’t think you need a size limit for each individual attachment.
That’s what I thought PAOP did – and, thus, why I thought there was a glitch.
what about default limit for attachment size?
I really don’t think that matters. I have it set at 30K – but that is purely personal taste. (Space and speed aren’t really affected for a 10K file.)
However, I think setting it at 10 is fine, as long as users can change it.
