[Solved]PowerArchiver IMG-file opening/extraction



  • When I tried to extract files from my IMG-file, I got nothing.
    Then I opened IMG-file with PowerArchiver v14.06.01, it showed me the empty window.
    After that I opened the same IMG-file in 7-Zip v9.34, it showed me the archive(image) structure, and allowed me to extract it.

    diskcopy.img (1.44 MB)

    it told me it was an invalid file or corrupt when I tried various programs to access it.

    Maybe the diskcopy.img file was downloaded incorrectly.
    You can try to download this file from zippyshare or rghost from above link.
    Also you can make this img-file by yourself:

    1. Open with Restorator (resource editor) diskcopy.dll file from C:\Windows\System32 folder.
    2. Open BINFILE folder and save 1 resource as diskcopy.img file.

    diskcopy.img file can be opened or extracted correctly by using following programs:

    7-Zip 9.34
    Bitser 1.1.0.0
    Easy 7-Zip 0.1.2
    FreeArc 0.67
    HaoZip 4.4.1.9596.1
    PeaZip-5.4.1
    WinArchiver 3.6
    UltraISO 9.6.1.3016

    Programs, which can not correctly open or extract this img-file:

    ALZip 8.5.1
    B1 Free Archiver 1.5.86.4889
    BandiZip 5.02
    Express Zip Plus 2.8
    Hamster Free ZIP Archiver 3.0.0.74
    IZArc 4.1.9
    PKZip 14.20.0027
    PowerArchiver 14.06.01
    UltimateZip 7.0.8.1
    Windows 8.1 Explorer (as Mount)
    WinRAR 5.20
    WinZip Pro 18.5



  • I found the interesting thing. If change the extension from *.IMG to *.CAB
    the PowerArchiver 14.06.01 opens this archive, but with different files as 7-ZIP v9.34.

  • Problem solved in PowerArchiver v 14.06.03. Thank you.
