Because of trying to compress or extract files from main partition, I am getting this error: 

"Cannot modify volume"!

What could I have been doing wrong?  Please give me some suggestions on how to solve this.  Thanks.

Volumes are only possible in WINRAR archive format. You cannot create zip volumes.  Your problem is, that you are going for modification in volume. Remember WINRAR doesn’t support adding, deleting or updating a volume. Since, volumes are distributed archives in different drives or diskettes.  For modification or any change in a particular volume you should unpack the volumes or extract the volume.  Volumes are solid and self extracting. please note that all volumes together can unpack and if we are talking about single volume, it can only extract not unpack.

To unpack, you need to collect all volumes from different drives or diskettes and put them in a single folder then start extracting from the very first volume. Make changes in your desired volume and then make another split archive.
