Unzip forgets files

#1 Post by milan45169 » 03.10.2015, 06:58

When unzipping a .zip-file including .mid- and .mp3- and 1 pdf-files there is only the pdf-file in the unzipped folder. The .mid- and .mp3-files are ignored.
7zip and the Win7 internal unpacker do well.
I use Build 697 x64.

Can you provide an example of such an archive? I can't replicate this on my win7x64.

Oh, it's because the illegal ":" character in the folder names, not because the extensions.

Maybe Marek could add a workaround for Unpack operation. For example, 7-Zip just replaces them with "_" and carries on with the extraction.

In the meantime, just use drag&drop for copy operations from such archives, because drag&drop uses Windows copy method which works the same way as 7-Zip.

I can say more - folders with the illegal ":" character could not be unpacked, BUT you can find all *.mid and *.mp3 files from that archive in C:\Program Files\FreeCommander XE\

They are all were unpacked there! Tested in FC XE 698 x86 under Windows XP SP3. It should not be so!

Used Freecommander for copy/move/delete operations and copied files from opened archive with F5 key.

Found rather strange thing. 7-Zip (I use current beta version 15.09) as @joby_toss found, just replaces illegal ":" character in the folder names with "_" and extract all files and folders without any problems.

So I decided to update Total7Zip 0.8.5.6 plugin (it is build on very old 7-zip 9.22 beta version) to current version. It could be done very easy. Plug-in uses original 7-zip files, and you can use the latest version of 7-zip to update the plug-in (information from plugin readme.rtf). So I unpacked 32 and 64-bit files from 7Zip setups into corresponding folders of plugin. But even after that, archive couldn't be unpacked in FC XE.

So I'm afraid the problem is in FC XE (it could not replace illegal characters) and not in plug-ins...
