Hi Expert,

Just a quick question - How does one zip a 20MB file into 5 x 4MB files on the hardisk? Can WInzip do it, or would I need a third party proggy for that?

Many thanks
Frohike

Goetz's File Splitter comes in handy if you have a file that's too large to fit on a floppy. It's also good if you have an e-mail account that limits the size of file attachments

The latest (beta) version of Winzip allows you to do this...

1. First you open or create a Zip file
2. Choose Split from the Actions menu
3. Specify a new name for the output file
4. Specify the filesize for the individual parts
5. Click OK

Get it from here

Winzip will do this!

You need to unzip the file to a hard disk and then redo the zip. When creating the new zip you will have the option to "span volumes" when the A: drive is selected

For this Winzip 8.0 is required from the below link:

John,

Frohike was asking for how to split a 20MB ZIP file into 5 separate files, of 4MB each. :)
