i have amiga lemonade running nicely . i have a collection of amiga "adf" files in a single zip file of 4 gig. unfortunatley lemonade wont read it as such.
if i expand the file i get about 20,000 files and takes up about 16 gig.
i thought torrent zip may help, but it didnt work.
"super cool multiple zip" will do it but you need to register it.. i have downloaded the command line interface for izarc and no joy there either.
if i could get a dat file for clrmame that would be handy.

anyone got any ideas how to make multiple zips from multiple files and keep the exiting names and just put .zip on the end?

WinRar is your friend. I use it to do this ALL the time.

Change to Zip Archive and go Advanced? and select individual files.

Cheers,
Brad

ok, have installed Winrar 3.7 (current available)



go to options
settings
compression
create default
general tab
select zip
select "files" tab
put a tick in the box that says "put each file in seperate archive"


AWESOME!!! Brad your the man.I will dedicate my next ten beers to your name!

Woo-Hoo!!! it worked. it took 17 gig of afd files and re zipped them each to their own zip file using the original filename and chopped it to 10 gig (used maximum compresson.took a few hours)


Brad... mate.. thanks sssooooo much for this very simple answer.love your work mate.

7zip is even better, freeware and GNU.

true words from Pinny...but alas, Lemonade Amiga (http://www.lemonamiga.com/) does *NOT* support it

Yes but 7-Zip also supports the ZIP format and others. I just don't bother as I have a true registered copy of WinRar.


* High compression ratio in new 7z format with LZMA compression
* Supported formats:
o Packing / unpacking: 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR
o Unpacking only: RAR, CAB, ISO, ARJ, LZH, CHM, Z, CPIO, RPM, DEB and NSIS
* For ZIP and GZIP formats, 7-Zip provides a compression ratio that is 2-10 % better than the ratio provided by PKZip and WinZip
* Self-extracting capability for 7z format
* Integration with Windows Shell
* Powerful File Manager
* Powerful command line version
* Plugin for FAR Manager
* Localizations for 63 languages
