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.
Unsolved just small problem
i have folder with 21,875 file in it most of them small
now if i try to create zip file from this folder file counted soon
and start zipping now if i cancel and click yes in archive operation interrupted dialog nothing happen
now if i try to create this archis as *.pa format counting file
take around 2 min and 30 seconds then again during archive can not cancel it
also process cpu usage is to much
Somewhat confusingly to cancel you have to choose “No” to say you don’t want to continue. But even then it’s very disappointing how long it sometimes carries on afterwards. I think maybe something was broken in .92 it does seem worse than I remember for .zip files.
I dislike Yes/No used in this way.
Especially like this where I click Cancel and I’m effectively asked if I don’t want to cancel.
In your mind you’re thinking you’re confirming that you meant to cancel, not that you’re saying No I didn’t cancel accidentally.
Cancel yes/No would be better.
Just Cancel/Continue even better.
oh understand it now.
yes when click Cancel it should be Cancel no more question
Are you using version .92?
It cancels rather quickly for me on a test job of about 900 files.
Confirmation dialog is there to make sure that the Cancel button is not pressed accidentally which can obviously result in an unwanted cancellation. The text structure in the dialog is different than most confirmation dialog, but it is rather straightforward. Maybe we can update it in the future(requires updating of a lot of translations)
@brian-gregory it is a trick because cancelling might cost you something while not cancelling wont.
@mohammad you can pick number of threads you want to use… by default it tells you how many threads are available and then you can lower it for less cpu usage. This is in main Add window.
@spwolf Wont? What about time spent with increased blood pressure cursing PA for not cancelling.
yes latest build
it sometimes take 5 sec sometime take more than 30sec to cancel
it has minimize button so user can easily send it to tray then no more accidentally cancel or at least that yes button should cancel not no button.but still in counting file for adding to archive it take long time(pa format) but with zip its ok
thanks manual threads is a little effective
1 thread 4% to 11% cpu with low priority
so then its ok for me
thanks for all yours help
