Test PAE

  • Banned

    About a year ago, I decided, partly based on your recommendation, to use PAE for all my important encrypted files.

    From the beginning, though, there was one thing about that choice that made me uneasy: the inability to test them to make sure the archive is OK.

    You CAN test ZIPX and 7ZIP encrypted files (after entering the password), but not PAE.

    If that feature is forthcoming, I can stick with PAE encryption; if not, I may have to start converting all files to zipx or 7zip or RAR with their internal encryption. These are critical files, and I want to make sure there are all right before deleting the originals.

  • Socrates, that’s a good suggestion although during the encryption process it might already test the structure before finalizing. However, the option to test would be a nice option.
