Large Zip Files


I’m currently downloading & using a JUCE app to decode .zip files.

This works great most of the time, but i’ve hit an issue with .zips over 2GB returning 0 entries.

Is it normal for zips over 2GB to fail?



Well, the zip format is very old and the sizes and offsets in its directory structure are all 32-bit, so I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if it fails. There may be newer variants on the format that extend it to 64-bit sizes but that’s not something we ever added to the juce implementation.
