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.
I see that the newest versions of SecureZip have the feature to encrypt filenames for .zip archives. When these .zip archives are open in PowerArchiver, the filename is shown, and when it is clicked on it asks for a password. If the password is entered an error: “The password is incorrect” is displayed. I think it would be great if this feature could be included in our PowerArchiver! Sorry for posting in the wrong discussion thread.
you mean it wont extract the file at all, or it wont show proper filename?
When the .zip file with encryption (with encrypt filenames also checked in SecureZip) is opened in PowerArchiver the individual files are shown with numbers. The numbers count in hex. (1-9 a-f etc)
Double clicking on one of the files brings up the password entry dialog box. Entering the password brings up an error “The password is incorrect” -and the file is not decrypted.
If “encrypt filenames” is not checked in SecureZip’s options, the created encrypted .zip file will open perfectly fine in PowerArchiver (showing all original filenames), and then entering the password will allow decrypting and viewing the files.
thanks, we will check it out. I dont remember this correctly, but I know that encrypted filenames is only part of zip spec thats patented. I have to investigate this further.
