Compression 2GB file size limit - Archive is not a valid zip file

I am building a flow to unzip files and move them to a new location. I have the flow working, but am getting an error with zip files larger than 2GB "Archive is not a valid zip file or a parameter is not set." 

 

Since the flow is working with smaller file sizes I'm led to believe there must be a 2GB size limit but cannot find this in documentation anywhere.

Any ideas?

Hello,

 

I think this is an issue with the previous versions of PAD, I just installed the latest version and it worked fine.

 

My current version is: 2.5.39.21056

Hmm, that is the same version I have. I'll try testing on a different machine and see if that makes a difference.

Did not work on my other machine. Any other ideas on why it would be working for you and not for me?

Hello,

 

Have you tried to unzip the file manually to make sure the file is not corrupted? 

Can you find another big file ? then try to zip this file and using PAD for unzipping it ?

 

Thanks and hope it can help you.

Yes, I'm able to do it manually. I also have tried multiple different zip files and creating new zip files as you suggest.

I have the same problem. Have you found any solution?

Thanks.

Hello @jina 

 

What is the size of your zip file and which PAD version are you using?

If you are using the latest and still not working then probably could be a size limitation issue.
