    Hi

    PowerArchiver 11.00 Beta 1 is out.

    Change log:

    "Main Application:

    * Preview window - easily preview archives, images, text and many other file types, without having to open archive or file. Works both while browsing drives and inside archives. Supports Plug-ins.
    * Backup list window - see your backups on integrated list for easier usage.
    * Speed - overall great speed improvements in compression and extraction, especially in Vista with RAR/ZIP files.
    * New ZIP Engine - zip can now compress files in use; proper progress window.
    * Improved 7-Zip Engine - support for fast updating of non-solid archives, themed overwrite dialogue with proper options.
    * Unicode support - better support for Unicode in 7-zip and RAR formats.
    * New Configuration window - easier to use configuration window.
    * Modern/Classic interfaces - streamlined for easier use, more MRU's.
    * Archive Convertor - added "save password for current session" option.
    * Encrypt Tool - completely redone - now option to create zip and 7zip encrypted archives, as well as encrypt current archives to 3 different formats (zip, 7-zip, pae).
    * Batch Archive tool - added "Add subfolders to separate archives" option.
    * Multi Extract tool - added "File's current folder" and "Save password for current session" options.
    * Add window - redone for easier usage and more options added.
    * Transparent Updating - added support for updating solid cab archives.
    * Web Update - now checks for PAOP updates as well as any other PA component.
    * Installer - future updates can now come in form of patches.
    * 64bit skinning engine for x64 systems.

    Backup:

    * Interface - completely new interface with sidebar navigation.
    * File list support - export/import file lists.
    * Filters - added include and exclude filters at the same time.
    * Backup Types - added full/incremental/differential backup types.

    Shell Extensions:

    * Unicode - completely rewritten for Unicode support.
    * Reorganized - more features, more options, less clutter.

    Improvements/Bug Fixes:

    * Many improvements and bug fixes."

    Has anyone used this before? I remember I tried their 2007 version a while back and it had a modern interface but was slow in compressing large amounts of files.

    Thanks

    There is a Pro Version in Ver 2009 and they are offering existing user an 80% discount. What a great deal, the feature might not be useful but who know we might need it in future...

    The pro version looks very interesting with virtual dvd.

    Hi

    I agree, and it's also got burning. However, I'm afraid they could be getting more *bloated*.

    Hmmm, looks like bloat-ware to me. Used to love it but I just want an archiver that works well.

    Runs fine here. You could try IZArc as an alternative.

    Agreed. I used and like PA2007, but is has changed a lot since then. I recommed 7-zip. It is no-nonsense, and very effective. I use my own custome gui for it though.

    Hi

    I prefer IZarc cause I think it supports more format and I prefer the interface.

    This thread is about the new version of Powerarchiver.

    Please refrain from all the "why don't you use....." or "I use..." posts.

    Fair enough....

    PA is crap! It is bloated and contains tools that the vast majority of users will never use.
