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



  • See title. I browsed through the excellent PA help file, but didn’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. ;) I have a couple of large files (around 10 gigs per file) that I need to archive and encrypt. :)

    there are no maximum sizes (practically unlimited) ;-)

    Thanks, that’s great! :) 7zip is my favorite format by far. Maybe it takes a lot of memory, but it’s really good compression, and I have plenty of memory.
