What version of winzip you have? old version does not have option to split the file. Why dont you try the free version winrar that has such option for you, and it can be open by winzip too.

I know that winrar can create splitted archive files, winzip not sure...

otherwise, I used the following tool (gfsplit):

Hi,

The only option to split archive I know for Winzip is "Spanning":

I recommend (and I use) Winrar (good tool, multi-function, and supports a lot of formats including zip):

Not sure free version of winzip 11 has such option, but pro version (paid version) has.

I recommend using 7zip instead of winzip. Just set it to use the ZIP format (instead of 7zip) and you're set. In the create/add to archive screen, the bottom right portion of the dialog includes "Split to volumes, bytes", where you can either type in the # of bytes you want the zip split between, or pick from the drop down of popular sizes like floppy disks, etc.

7zip is opensource, and thus, my preferred free alternative to WinZip.

I don't routinely use WinZip to do this anymore (I used to use the Spanning feature when using floppy disks)  I now zip the file as normal and split it into equal sized chunks using HJSplit (http://www.freebyte.com/hjsplit/).  It's a tiny download and easy for the recipent to get a copy.

I'm sorry, my last message may not be helpful in your situation. I was able to find a computer with WinZip 8 on it, so this should help...

I am using the "classic interface".
Create a new archive, add your files to it, and then there is an "actions" menu. Choose "Split" from the actions menu. Or, try pressing Shift-H.
