Large File Zip


I'm currently using ODS Package to create Zip files. It works just fine for most files, but not for a 9GB file I have. I received a message after running the code saying:

ZIP is too large for the version 2.0 ZIP format. Switching to the version 4.5 ZIP format.

Any idea?

That will only be an issue if someone attempts to open using the 2.0 Zip or equivalent programs. IIRC that means about 10 years old software...

Re: Large File Zip

use the xcmd setting for a call to a more recent zip tool (piping).
