Hi.  I'm trying to compress and zip a 6 GB avi file using winzip 8.1 sr 2 with zip64 extension.  Im having an error of "The file is too big to be stored on a Zip file and will be skipped".  I'm on xp 64-bit and my question is, can winzip 9.1 sr 2 compress a 6 GB file?

Hi there, In winzip 8.1 sr2, the maximum compress capacity is 4 GB and the limitation about number of files and folder is 65,535. But you don't have to worry about your winzip 9.1 because winzip 9.1 comes within a command line support add-on 1.1. It has the ability to manage 16 billion gigabytes and over 4 billion files and folders can be added in a zip file. I hope that you got your answer. Thank you.

Hello,

WinZip is a paid software where 7-zip is free and can do same job. Its 7z format is better than zip format. You can understand its value from this page.

Is it necessary to install 7 zip?
