What's the maximum file size of encrypted 7zip archives?

  • See title. I browsed through the excellent PA help file, but didnโ€™t find the maximum file size PA allows for 7zip AES encrypted archives (with hide filenames enabled, if it makes any difference). I guess the lack of mention might mean the maximum file size is really large, but I just wanted to be sure. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have a couple of large files (around 10 gigs per file) that I need to archive and encrypt. ๐Ÿ™‚

    there are no maximum sizes (practically unlimited) ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thanks, thatโ€™s great! ๐Ÿ™‚ 7zip is my favorite format by far. Maybe it takes a lot of memory, but itโ€™s really good compression, and I have plenty of memory.
