Is there a size limit for Zip files created using Archive? I don't seem to be able to create a file larger than 2GB on a Windows 2008 R2 server with my application pool set to 32 bit mode.
I'm fairly certain that it is not a server limitation as I can create very large files by using the the native right-click/send to compressed file feature on the server.
Archive is not designed to handle files larger than 2 GB. Is your application classic ASP or ASP.NET? Archive is mainly used by our customers who are using FileUp in classic ASP. There are a number of free libraries available for compressing files in .NET.
Please let us know if you have further questions.
Thanks for the response. I'm using classic ASP.
I was able to write a piece of code that would break the folders/files being archived into smaller (less than 2GB) zip files using the FileManager Folder.Size property to get around the 2GB issue.
It's not perfect, but it suits my needs.
Glad you were able to find a solution.
