Thank you for reading this post. I am trying to write a program to backup couple files with Zip. Everything looks fine when create just one zip archive, however, not the case if I set max. size for each archive(spanning). I spent so much time on this bug and now I am totally give up. Would anyone kindly to tell what is wrong with this code?

Thanks ....

Hi Cindy,
Thanks for replying this post =)
The problem is when I try to unzip those archives using WinZip, the first file unzip properly (e.g. -- 1,291k) except the very last zip entry, which is splitted into 2) and the ones follow(e.g. -- 561k) will say "Cannot open file: it does not appear to be a valid archive."
Thanks again
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
