Bug in rar compression support



  • I just wanted to mention that support for compression to rar doesn’t work properly. When I compress a directory, in the archive I get the content of this directory. This is especially annoying when I compress several directories or files and directories - then I get the content of that directories mixed together.

    The problem occurs in versions 15.04.03 and 16.00.46.



  • Did you try 16.00.51?

    @spwolf:

    Should be up in few minutes. Various fixes/improvements.

    I tryed it a moment ago. Unfortunately, there is the same problem. It seems to me that PowerArchiver passes wrong parameters to rar.exe.
    It’s something like:
    rar.exe a -y -r0 -m4 -ep1 name.rar "C:\…\Test\DirectoryName"
    Should be:
    rar.exe a -y -r0 -m4 -ep1 name.rar “C:…\Test\DirectoryName”

    Without “” symbol at the end.

    Latest release:
    http://dl.powerarchiver.com/2016/powarc160053.exe

    This should be fixed now. We had to call rar.exe from root/base folder of desired path so we could get proper relative paths stored for multiple folders (previously -ep1 was used to get same effect but it didnt work with multiple folders)… Thanks!



  • Works like a charm 🙂 Good job.
