Multi part zip file in c#

Sep 13, 2008 at 4:55 AM
Is it possible for this utility to break the zip file apart into predetermined file sizes?  And then later be opened with a standard Zip program?  I would like to be able to specify the file size right in my C# code, and then it would create all separate part files to be zipped back up later.  Thanks

No, this library does not produce or read multi-part zip files.

Can you explain why you need this? You're the first one to ask for it. 
Multi-part zips used to make sense when there was an a physical limit to the size of the storage media - when floppy disks were the media for moving data, the limit per disk was 1.44mb.

 I need to be able to have the zip in multiple parts for emailable chunks.  Many email services only allow 10 MB max per email, and if the zip were larger it would not work.  Email is the only way to send the zip files so they must be small enough to work with any email service.

Ah, I see. Ok that makes sense.

I've entered a workitem. http://www.codeplex.com/DotNetZip/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=6156
I don't know when I might get to looking into it.
