Advanced Codec Pack:
Advanced Codec Pack – .pa format is an advanced collection of codecs and filters that, when combined together, create the .pa format. It features two main modes:
Optimized Strong mode brings very strong compression to .pa format, with special codecs for pdf/docx files, exe/dll files, jpeg files, text/html files and many more. It provides for best overall compression currently available in professional compression software. Compared to WinZIP (zipx), it is several times faster while providing for better compression.
Optimized Fast mode that is optimized for speed and includes the super fast base codec as well as data deduplication and exe/dll filters. This combination of codecs and filters is much faster than zip while also creating smaller files.
64bit version: – Advanced Codec Pack can use maximum ram and cpu from your system, which lead us to creating a native 64bit version of PowerArchiver. It is now recommended to always use the 64bit version of PowerArchiver to get the maximum performance from .pa format.
