Independent spanned zip files

  • Hi,
    You should add a option that creates independent spanned zip files, based on approximate file size or maximum amount of files per zip.
    For example, I’m working on a project that requires ~2,000,000 files that are ~272GB in size. The machine I’m working on has only 60GB of free space, so I can’t put all of these files on the machine at the same time.
    Current span zip option allows me to split the zip files, but is dependent on all of them for extraction.
    I would like to create 5GB zip files and move them one by one for processing.
    After processing I’d delete the extracted files and move in the next zip file.

    I currently use a software called “SpinZip” which does the above, but I’d really like if it could be implemented in PowerArchiver.
