Standard ZIP compression using spanning ERROR!



  • Yesterday I’ve tried to compress 6 GB data into 100 MBs split archives. The archives was named “name.z01”, and there was no main “.zip” file, just only the .z01, 02… I could not opened the archive in any case.

    did you enable “Make large zip” option before compression?

    thanks,

    Yes, of course.

    how exactly did you compress these files? Please outline it step by step so I can check it out. What version of PA are you using?

    thanks,

    thanks,

    Here it is (step by step):

    PowerArchiver version: 9.25.02 (June, 2005)

    _1. I’ve selected the folder, right click on it, click on PA context menu, than selecting “Compress To ZIP + Options”.

    2. My settings:
    Compression: ZIP, Super Fast; Action: Add (and replace) files; Include system and hidden folders: yes; Save full folder info: no; Write directly into ZIP: no (not possible); Use Deflate64 compression: yes; Make larga ZIP file: yes; Encrypt archive (.PAE): no; Create solid archive: no (not possible); Profile: ZIP default; Spanning: 100MB; Spenning mode: PkZip/PA 7.0 Compatible; ZIP encryption: Disabled.

    3. When the archive is ready, no main ZIP file can be found. If I don’t use spanning, the whole archive contains CRC errors while testing._

    Thats all, I hope this helps!

    Hi,

    thanks for the info. Can you select same options in main PowerArchiver window and see if it works there? I am having trouble reproducing it and trying it out in main window might give us some important info.

    thanks a lot…
