I have in my package three directories of document files. The installer file size is ~1.9 GB. I zipped these three directories into three files included them in the package and excluded the three directories from the package. I used 2 methods of compression:
- zip with no compression ( -0 option)
- zip with maximum compression (-9 option)
With the first option the size of the installer file reached to ~2.3 GB With the second option the size of the installer file reached to ~2.1 GB
The method compression which I use for my package is LZMA and I wonder why the size of the package with the zipped file is larger then the original package with the directories. I assumed that bitrock might not compress files with zip extension so I rename the file to .dat.
Is bitrock have the ability to compress zipped file (with or without compression as described) by LZMA? Is there any way to compress these directories into a zip file and still not exceed 2 GB ?
Thank You, Ronen
