Dopus suddenly won't extract LhA Files

Last night, I was happily extracting Lha WHDLoad games from my CF card to my CF Amiga HD and it was working fine. This morning however, I get this error, Unable to open Archive, Operation Failed!



It only seems to happen with LhA files, zip files are fine.

Can anyone enlighten me? I have the Lha file in my C Drive.

File corruption? Virus?

I solved it, the problem was that I had spaces and a ( in the path of where the WHDLoad games were, I renamed the folder last night. Can't get out the habbit of thinking that it's OK to use spaces etc in file names lol too used to modern computing i guess

It's ok to use spaces in file names if you configure the lha command line correctly (enclose path names in quotation marks).
