Question about IZArc and large zip files


J

Has anyone had a problem opening large zip files with IZArc,
especially ones with a large amount of folders in the zip file?

I have several guitar tab zip files that have folders for the name
of each music group and then songs inside each folder. There
are a hundred or more folders in each one.
For example;
One is 99 megs with 2400 files in 465 folders
One is 25 megs with 11,000 files in 710 folders
One is 23 megs with 7,000 files in 150 folders

IZArc hangs everytime I try to open the files and I have to kill
the process as it never opens the file. On the other hand it will
open a 518 meg file with 14 files, and a 497 meg file with 797
files. It seems to have a problem opening zip files that have a
large amount of folders in them.

I also have 7-Zip, TugZip, ZipGenius, and two shareware zip
programs and they all open them up with no problem. I like
IZArc, but I don't understand why it can't open those files.

Yes, I noticed this too. At work I archive many thousands of files into
one zip and izarc would take forever to open and sort them. So I
switched to 7-zip and all is fine now.

If one program doesn't do it for you, remove it and try another.
Especially when there are multiple programs that do pretty much the
same thing.

Yes.

Thanks for the notice. It didn't occur to me that it could be Izarc as I
have only one really big zip-file.
Except from this Izarc is in my opinion the most userfriendly archiver,
and it's translated to a lot of languages.

Well, got to look at alternatives again.

Thank you for the reply and I'm glad to know that I am not the
only one experiencing this problem. I decided to keep izarc as
my primary zip program and also installed 7-zip for the files that
izarc can't open.

I decided to keep izarc as my default zip program and installed
7-zip for the files that izarc can't open. It does not hurt to have
two zip programs available.

Thanks for the suggestion.
After checking alternatives, I've decided that your solution is also the
best for me.
