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.
WinRAR 5 has a rather useful option in some cases, which is to be able to create an archive by replacing identical files with a reference to the first occurrence (hardlink) within the archive.
In case you choose to convert the file with PowerArchiver to another format, however, the resulting archive does not have all the files. It does not consider those that were present as hardlinks.
If you do a normal extraction of the RAR archive instead, even with PowerArchivier, all the files are extracted correctly.
Unsolved 1st char to select file in list fails (a reprise)
This is the return of a previous issue. With an archive open and the file list longer than the window display, typing the first letter of the file in the list to jump to the first entry does not work. It will work if a file name starting with that letter is visible in the list window, but not otherwise.
I am using version 19.00.47 64 bit.
