Hello: I am wondering whether there is a upper limit of the zip file size that xceed can produce. The max zip file I have created successfully is 2.3Gb from two 1.5Gb iso and one 300mb iso file, while it fails to compress three 1.5Gb iso files and left 2 temp files in the temp directory, each of them is 1G size. So I am wondering how big is the zip file size that xceed is able to produce.
Thanks and best regards

The Zip64 zip file format is the 64-bit counterpart of the zip file format that is used by PKZIP 4.5 and up. It supports up to 2^64 -1 files within a zip archive as well as files that have a size greater than 4GB for a zip file size that can reach up to about 18 million terabytes ( more precisely, 2^64 -1bytes).
Split or spanned zip files can have a maximum of 2^32 -1 parts.
