is there a way to create splitted Zip files with the Chilkat Zip Component? For example: 3 files, each with 100 MB (Filename.001.zip, Filename.002.zip, Filename.003.zip) and a file with 29 MB (Filename.004.zip), rather than a file with 329 MB (filename.zip)
Thanks for the help

Unfortunately, the ability to create multi-volume (split) zips is not a feature in the Chilkat Zip component. It's not in the future plans for a number of reasons:
1) The Chilkat Zip component will automatically use the ZIP64 extensions if a .zip grows beyond limits such that it's needed.

thanks for the reply. I agree with point 2 in part. However, there are plenty of systems which have a maximum limit, such as Microsoft Exchange, with a maximum attachment size from 20 to 25 MB per email.
What currently constitutes a problem for me. Since I unfortunately can not create a multi-volume Zips, I have an alternative to work with the compressed file size and append single files into zip.
Thanks for the help. :)
