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.
Solved Unzipped files ending in the recycle bin
If you unzip 'zip’files in explorer, using right mouse click, no problems. You can manage where, how, etc…
If you use the left mouse click to start immediatley the unzipping, then you call for problems… I don’t know if this is directley related with PA.
See what happens :
- I created an encrypted zip file via PA
Now I am in a hurry and use the left mouse button to unzip it :
A new sub folder is created with the unzipped file ready to open…
The job is finished but you can notice that there are two .doxc files (original in main folder, a second in the new created sub folder)
So I delete the sub folder… and see the FINAL result of this action :
My encrypted zip file is now transfered to the recycle bin.
This way you can loose all your files in a zip archive if you deleted the original unzipped… lucky there is a recycle bin.
- I created an encrypted zip file via PA
@pirrbe hello Pierre… what explorer replacement are you using?
When you left click on zip in that explorer replacement, it opens up the zip file, it is not a folder, it is a zip file. So when you delete that “folder”, you actually deleted zip file. You can see that the “folder” has name .zip, so it is not a folder, it is a zip file that your explorer replacement is showing under folder icon.
In any case, this is how your explorer replacement works, it is not due to PA.
@spwolf You are wright ! The whole hocus pocus is due to the explorer I use. It’s Directory Opus 12 Pro. When I use the explorer from Win10, no problem at all. As my remark in the forum is not relevant for PA users, please can you delete it from the forum. Thanks, and next time I will double check observations with ‘classic’ software :-).
