Zip File Spanning

6 users found this article helpful

WinZip Pro will automatically create a Zip file that spans multiple discs if the Zip file will not fit on a single optical disc. To burn a new Zip file to a CD or DVD, click the File tab and then click New Zip file on CD/DVD. It is also possible to burn a new Zip file to a CD or DVD when using a WinZip Backup.

Supported disc formats are: CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, and DVD+RW (spanning is not supported with Blu-ray discs).

Unzip a spanned Zip file

To unzip a spanned Zip file, first insert the last disc of the spanned series and open the Zip file using WinZip; this will display the list of files and folders and allow you to extract them. WinZip will prompt you for each disc as needed to complete the operation.
