ZIP AES-x encryption in normal GUI



  • Is it true, that I can only generate ZIP AES-x based encypted zip-files by using the explorer context menu ? (Zip+Options)
    This should be also an option in the ‘normal’ GUI, 'cause it’s a commoly accepted standard and (therefore) compatible with other ZIP tools.

    BTW: It would be a great feature to be able to create an encrypted self-extractor.

    PS: PA is the best packer I know !

  • Oh yes, you are right in this case. Good to know - thanks.
    But I opened an already existing archive and did an ‘Encrypt’ …

    Well, that generates a PAE file (PowerArchiver Encrypted) - not an encrypted ZIP file.
    Currently, to produce ZIP encrypted from a ZIP, you need to uncompress/recompress.
