Old PAE file

  • I have a file that I encrypted a few years ago with power archiver 5 (i believe). The current version says that it does not recognize the encryption format. What can I do to retrive this file?

    PAE files were available since PA 2002 8.0 I believe. There were no changes to the format, so only possible soultion (if it is an .pae file) would be that the file has been corrupted and hence doesnt work anymore.

    Is it .pae file for sure?

    Open this file with NOTEPAD and check if it is PAE file - it must have correct PowerArchiver PAE header, checksum and encrpytion method…
