I noticed that the option to add the optimize archive function to the context menu is missing on Windows 10.
Opening each archive with the interface in order to click it becomes tedious with many files.
Same for others functions like Remove Archive Encryption
It would be nice to be able to at least extract Zstandard archives.
I prefer to use light themes, and when, for example, I have set up my main archive screen to be Classic Toolbar with Blizzard Blue, files in the archive are highlighted (no checkboxes, full row select) with white text on grey background. They are easy to see .
However, in the Add screens, the files and folders are black type upon a pale blue background, which is not so readily visible, especially when highlighting separate files in lists with Ctrl/Click for addition. It would be ideal if the backgrounds to files in these screens could be set to mimic the highlighting of those in the main archive window.
I have tried experimenting with different themes and settings for skins, toolbars and so forth, but, unless I’ve missed something, none seem to give me the effect I want.
Re: Windows 11 Context menu support
It would really make me happy if you put .BH in the Windows 11 context menu. I know it’s in the “More Options” section, but this would make it more convenient. Don’t know why the option to add it to the menu isn’t there in the first place. P-L-E-A-S-E ??? :) Thanks You!
Any chance of including this format in a future release?
Exceptional compression levels.
In Windows 11 a new explorer context menu is introduced.
The “old” context menu may still be accessed through an additional mouse click, to reach the PowerArchiver context menu functions, but this isn’t comfortable at all.
Could you add PowerArchiver items to the first level (and ideally disable the Windows native ZIP entry)
I’m surprised that OneDrive for Business isn’t supported. I can’t link my company’s OneDrive account, but a personal (free) account works fine.
I’d like to propose an improvement for password protected archives.
Actual behavior is:
If I open an archive, which is password protected and make a typo in the password dialog, I’ll get the message, that the password was wrong and I end up with an empty window. I need to reopen the archive to be able to enter the password again.
Tell me, that the password was wrong and give me the chance to enter the correct password to decrypt the archive.
I know I have been asking for this feature some time ago, but as nothing has changed let me ask again:
The ZIPX-format offers an algorithm, that compresses JPEG-files by about 20-30%. Please add compression (packing) support for this in ZIPX-archives to Powerarchiver. Extraction of JPEGs packed into ZIPX by this algorithm is already supported by Powerarchiver for a long time, so it should not be difficult? Or is it a licensing problem?
winuha is has better compresion reatiojn than rar, zip and some tmes 7zip when will u support it
I don’t think it makes sense, if PA support every archive format in the internet. It is sufficient, if the mossst important are supoorted
true but this is the best archive formnat about if you don’t include 47zip as well and is better tahn rar and we support rar right?
PA supports RAR because it is more spreaded than UHA and 7Zip ;)
i can not write rar files with pa due to licences agreement. But i can uha files if pa supports it and its better compression format than rar and sometimes 7zip
When it becomes little bit more commonly used we shall definetelly consider its support.
For 9.5, UHA support is not planned, but we shall consider it for future version. It there are good reasons to support it, we shall consider.
This post should go to “Wishlist” forum.
I agree with davidsplash that UHARC is good.
It has both usable speed and fine compression.
Over 300.000 downloads of a gui like WinUHA
-even when it did not have SFX -modules then-
are reason for support. And isn’t it fitting for
PowerArchiver to go with the better algorithms out there?
So I welcome it that you want to consider it. :)
the new uha vrsion 0.6 is out and now has a sfx module 56K upx compressed. Just been using the program Winuha and comparing results with 7-zip for fun.
results are pretty good extra 3-6% compression ratio to 7-zip. using similar memory.
better than rar
