archive spanning on fixed disk

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    Hi, I was wondering, if multivolume spanning does get implemented in 7Zip, is it possible to make it so that you could make spans of a desired size onto the hard disk instead of a removable media? I'm requesting this feature because some online storage service (i.e. Yahoo Briefcase) will only allow file uploads of up to a certain size (in Yahoo's case: 5MB). I'd like to be able to use 7zip to break a 8MB archive down to 2 4MB archives so it can be uploaded without trouble. I used to use WinRAR to do this, but have ditched WinRAR for 7zip a few months ago, and am using 7zip prominantly now.

    Thanks, and keep up the good work!

      Download the latest beta release and try the new Split function in the File menu. That should fill your need if I understand it correctly.

      Okay, thanks. I'll try that.
