    What is the file size limit on 7z? Not 2gb like zip right?

    I have been looking for a good opensource or freeware backup program for windows, but one of the big things is it has to support very large files (mostly backing up to an external hard drive) but would be able to split the backup to DVD sized chunks too.  Any good programs like that around or being developed using the 7z SDK?

      7z uses 64 bits for file sizes. So limit is pretty big.
