UnRAR file >4GB on FAT32 makes PA 2011 close silently instead of giving error

  • Today I tried to extract a multi-file .RAR archive to a FAT32 partition. But halfway extracting, PA just closed silently while nothing was extracted.

    It turned out that the archive contained a file bigger than 4GB which obviously can’t be written to a FAT32 partition.
    Can the next version display an error message in that situation instead of silently closing PA? I’m using PA 2011 (12.00.41) toolbox edition.

    I did not yet try if other archive types than .rar also will make PA close silently when extraction >4GB files to FAT32 partitions.



  • could this be linked to the fault rar makers found and fixed
