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.
What do people think of egg archive foirmat
came across this
ALZip EGG Format A New Compression Format
ALZip represents a new compression file format, the EGG file! EGG file is great for global usage since it supports for Unicode. Compressing into EGG file saves you time to convert the language of the archive you need to encode. EGG file is a smart archive that selects the best method to compress. The Optimized Compression option analyzes the files and decides whether it should concentrate on compression ratio or compression speed or others. EGG file is also designed for very large archives. There is no data loss when compressing in EGG file.
Not heard of it before (but I understand why you didn’t give link).
But it seems it is NOT a compression format - it seems to use filetype to select from different archive formats within the same archive??
No info on which formats it uses - but probably just selects between the formats used by the actual program.
Their site is very vague on details. Other than it being a clever extension name, I can’t see any true benefits to it without more information.
Powerarchivers new format im sure when finished will beat eggs lol
i think they are using 7zip, just making it not compatible with 7zip itself, which makes no sense at all.
World does not need another format if it is same or worse than 7zip which is very popular.
it basically does what our 7zip and ZIPX optimized engines/options do, just not as well as they dont use multiple codecs at the same time.
So at the end, it is worse than 7zip by some 5% on my test files.
Thats typical of people using another persons work then throwing their own extension onto it… No wonder the website is vauge.
I certainly think PAFF will be the New compression methods once its fully complete and available.
