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.
Setting schedule for a backup job
Suppose you set up a backup job, and do not set a schedule then close it. You come back later and go to Backup, select the job, click Scheduling Options, select once a week and drop down says (today) once a week every Wednesday, go into Advanced Options, switch off Wed and select Friday, Ok it, and drop down still says Wed - confusing.
And after you Close, Schedule column still says it is not scheduled, you have to exit and come back in.
hmmm, lets check this out. Thanks Alycat!!!
Tried latest build, 15.01.05 and this is still there.
Are you referring to the Schedule dropdown in the Schedule tab of the Advanced Options menu in the schedule section of the Backup?
Seems to work fine here. It changes properly for me here according to the day I have selected, and I have tried changing days by unchecking the currently checked one and checking another one, click OK, go back to Advanced Options>Schedule Tab and the last checked day shows properly.
Let us know. thanks!
Load PA, make sure it is latest.
Click Archive top right and select Backup
Click New and enter say Test
Click Scheduling Options
Change to once a week
Change say Tuesday to say Wednesday
Item does not appear in list
If it was an existing, schedule would not have changed
sorry for the trouble, if you don’t mind, please post a screenshot of the said list where the item does not appear.
that will probably help me get it and i will take a look :) :)
There were 3 existing backups, I created a new one called test, set up a schedule, and closed it.
ahhh I see, thanks for that! let me check it out
Hey Alycat, please try clicking the Refresh button, that is shown in the above screenshot, immediately after adjusting and closing the backup, does it properly show then?
Hadn’t noticed the refresh, and yes if I click it the new backup is included … but I don’t see why I should have to, I used PA to create it, surely it knows about it ;)
PA Backup gets lonely sometimes and just wants some attention :D
spwolf will know for sure, but a future version of might refresh the window automatically.
But I hug my PA every day! :D
i was thinking to make it refresh with all files from the default backup folder?
When you click say New, enter a folder, set up your job, then click close, why not get that screen to send a message to the main screen (with the now out dated list), to pass the folder used and to tell it to refresh? Obviously I do not know all the details of your program - but that is just what I would have tried in my software.
