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.
Extraction error message
When downloading a restore file from my off-site backup, I get an error message (see attached).
I did not get the message when using WinRar,
BTW, I do have PA set to run as administrator.
what kind of archive is it? And does it happen every time? (even now)
Zip, created by CrashPlan when I want to restore a file via the web. Used it many times before with a hitch. maybe just something odd with the way they now create their zip files.
it seems the save the letter of the drive… how are you extracting the file exactly? Does it work when you simply right click on it in Explorer and select Extract here?
same error message from shell.
I will try it again and see if maybe it was something weird on their site.
Still a problem with another download. You might want to check with CrashPlan and see what they are using it. I have, until recently, done it numerous times without a hitch.
is there any small example you can send us? that would be helpful.
I installed Crashplan… i have set it up to do local backup but it does not save backup as zip? It saves it as series of files? I am sure there is a setting somewhere?
You have to let it backup some files.
Then from the web access (so you can get to your files when away from your computer), you can choose files to restore (up to half a gig right now), click restore. Then it creates a zip you can download for 24 hours.
This has been useful on the road more than once.
Got the example archive in your support message and have reproduced.
It’s logged in, lets see what’s up.
