Just put the floppy in the drive (empty one), type the following, it will automatically ask you to insert the other disks disks one by one in the process

arj a a:\library.arj *.*

*.* are the files, specify the path if needed. Say files are in c:\lib, instead of *.* should be c:\lib\*.*

actually the correct way is to tell arj the volume size in advance.


arj -ar -v1440 destination source

(actually that exact example is in the docs)

Are You Ready for GDPR?

With the GDPR deadline set for May 25, 2018, many organizations are ill-prepared due to uncertainty about the criteria for compliance. According to a recent WatchGuard survey, a staggering 37% of respondents don't even know if their organization needs to comply with GDPR. Do you?

The syntax i suggested works with ALL ARJ versions that _support_ volume spanning. IF the syntax doesnt work, it doesnt support spanning at all.

The syntax is

  arj a -vv -va -v1440 a:\xxx

After that just swap in the diskette when the computer instructed so....
