Please attach the original file and the corrupted file so we can compare. Since we do not really know traditional Chinese it is hard for us to determine this any other way.

They seem to be fairly the same. Obviously I cannot read the chinese parts. Some kind of pointer at to what the problem actually is would be appreciated.
You say "The file will not be normal and can not be executed by powershell." I do not really know what that means. Can you please be a little bit more specific?

I mean that when the file is save by primalpad, the ps1 can not be executed.
An error message will be displayed.

i find where is problem.

Please use the hex editor to open two files and observe the first three bytes

Normal file The first three bytes are ef bb bf, indicating that this is a UTF-8 file.

But after the pnimalpad archived file, the UTF-8 flag is missing.

Thank you for the update. Both files you sent are shown at UTF-8 here, but I will look into it. In the meantime, please try unicode files. It is generally a better option for this type of situation anyway.
