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.
FTP problems (TLS, Speed, Password)
I’m experiencing some problems with PowerArchiver 2011 12.00.41,
- I can’t connect using TLS encryption. If I select FTP + SSL/TLS. it just fails connecting, I have also tried with passive.
However if I select FTP+SSL instead, I can see in the log that it connects “AUTH TLS” “234 AUTH TLS successfull” And then it disconnects with “error while connecting”.
I can connect to this same FTP server with other FTP clients like Filezilla (where I select passive, FTP, with explicit FTP over TLS)
FTP download speed is all over the place, and does not appear to reflect actual speed. For example it was displaying 36 b/s constantly, but I normally reach 1.2MB/s speeds with this FTP and I could see that it wass downloading a lot faster than it says.
The FTP password in the GUI is not hidden
Isn’t the FTP Queue supposed to be saved if you exit PowerArchiver? It is cleared each time on exit.
password was known, it will be added/fixed before final… queue is cleared right now, but if you want it differently, make an thread in wishlist forums please?
we will check the rest and let you know… thanks for using!
speed has been fixed in .50 and we now published .51 with password masking… you can patchbeam it!
