    Hi, we're getting the "compress Error: Decoder error. Not enough disk space?" on two Win98SE machines that we're trying to decompress a >3GB archive to. Error occurs a couple of seconds after start of decompression.

    Disk space is definitely not the problem. To make matters more mysterious, we have two other Win98SE machines where decompressions runs fine, though, also on all other OS we've tested.

    But both errors that we do have are on Win98SE machines. Any clue what could be going on there...?

      "Disk space is definitely not the problem" ????

      Free HD space on TARGET partition ??
      Archive size compressed & uncompressed ??

      Have also 98 and don't know this BUG.

      Isn't there a 2GB FAT limit??  I'd say you can't extract it because your filesystem doesn't support files that large.  Try splitting the PDF into two parts or something.  The error happens so fast because the OS immediately tells 7-zip that the file won't "fit" because of the filesystem restrictions, for lack of a better explanation.

      If the PDF is in fact less than 2GB *per file* then perhaps it takes too much memory and increases the page file, making the disk run out of space.  That's all I can think of.
