Hi, John here
Please help. I have a very large audio file (100 Albums) Well last week I zipped it.
It took a while and worked fine (seemingly).
I have tried to open it withe winzip I cant open it .. I get this message .. Archive is bigger than 4.00gb then winzip refuses to open it..
I tried with winace and got this message .. File header is damaged abort operation. I click no and nothing happens.
So i'm stuck with my entire favourite albums in a folder I can't open.
Can anyone help?

Oh by the way I am using winace 2.6 and winzip 8.0 Im on xp with over 100gb now spare on my pc.

ADMIN I JUST NOTICED WHICH FORUM THIS IS IN. SORRY AN ERROR CAN YOU MOVE IT FOR ME PLEASE.
