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.
Hanging at end of Backup
I am trying PA 2015, and the two backups have hung. It occurs right at the very end, the last file in the last dir is displayed, the backup program goes “(Not responding)”.
Some backups worked ok, but one failed so I repeated it and also hung.
Any info I can send?
Moved the PA temp dir to another drive with more space, over 300G free, checked backup destination, 540G free, tried again … same result - the PA…tmp file is copied to the backup destination, but stays locked open.
Strange … tmp file appears closed, I can rename it … so changed it to a zip file and PA opens it ok :confused:
Tmp file is same size as backup destination zip file. If I eventually kill PA Backup and try to open the zip PA does open it, doesn’t complain it is corrupt … but there are only the very first few files in it.
No, it looks like I just have to wait, 55 minutes after it got to 100% it displayed a dialog saying backup complete :confused:
Hello, sorry for the issues you are seeing… send us pbs file to email@example.com and we will check it out. Thanks!
It looks like PA zips the data to a tmp file, and when that is finished is when the 100% is shown. At that stage it seems it starts copying the tmp file to the backup destination folder. There seems to be no visual indication of what is happening, the program appears unresponsive and there is no progress bar.
got the pbs script, thanks for sending it.
let’s take a look
please check this release:
it now has a proper progress dialogue for temp file copying.
