!! WINZIP - Span Multiple Volumes !!

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

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

Goetz's File Splitter will take a large file and split it up into smaller files that can fit on floppies or used in e-mail attachments. 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

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:
