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.
Backup to a Remote LAN Drive
I bought Power Archiver Pro 2010 from Ashampoo and am evaluating if I want to upgrade and use the 2011 Pro version for my 10 desktop computer network.
I have one server that has a spare disk drive in it and I would like to have all of my 10 desktop PC’s back up to this one spare drive.
I am on a private intranet LAN and I can map each desktop PC with the correct permissions to the server.
Is there a way to do this?
Map it as an network drive? It will get its drive letter and any Windows application should be able to access it as any other drive?
Hi Yes this seemed to work. I was able to see an achive built on the drive.:D
A couple of other questions I have:
1. When the drive is approaching full, will I get a notice or some other indication it is near full, or will I just get a backup failure?
2. Do I have manually remove old archive files once the drive gets full?
PA doesnt check on the status of the drive and you will indeed have to manually remove old archive files. You can setup backup to send you email with the logs though.
We pretty much hate auto deletion of your files, and we do try to avoid it at any time.
I sometimes do forget things :-).
You dont even have to set it as mapped drive, it will work with network location, such as \Backup-Server\folderforbackup
Thanks for the information. I understand about auto deletion of old archives. Your way is the best way. :D
So, how do I schedule an archive to start an update at a specific time? Is this possible?
Never mind I found it!
Thank You So Very Much!
open the backup, and in the options tree to the left, there are scheduling options… it will create windows task scheduler task which you can also edit later on (with its million options) from task scheduler as well.
