WinRAR 3.4x and solid RAR archives
« on: August 17, 2004, 04:26:13 PM »
I got major problem ...

when i place viruses into RAR solid archive, best compression, no recovery record

Avast 4.1.418 Pro is unable to scan within this archive ...

when i place viruses into RAR non solid, best compression, no recovery record

Avast detects viruses fine ...

is this just my own anomaly or it's affecting also others ?

thanks for help

I just tried and it works for me... is there anything special about the files, filenames, ...?
How exactly did you scan the file?

Tested it here with Winrar 2.6 (registered) and 4.30 beta 4 (unregistrered), both Dutch versions. No problems at all. Not with the full scanner or the quickscanner.

ok i checked this and IT not happen with all solid archives ...
so far i found 2 archives with such error ...

the thing is this solid archive contains directory with same name as archive and in that directory are viruses

in 2nd archive is over 1400 viruses ... avast not react and reports "2 scanned files"

if i repack it as normal archive, it's able see them ...

Would it be possible to put the archive somewhere online and send me a link by IM? (possibly packed again with a password)?

How do you scan the file?
