WinZip Pro will automatically create a Zip file that spans multiple discs if the Zip file will not fit on a single optical disc. To burn a new Zip file to a CD or DVD, click the File tab and then click New Zip file on CD/DVD. It is also possible to burn a new Zip file to a CD or DVD when using a WinZip Backup.

Supported disc formats are: CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, and DVD+RW (spanning is not supported with Blu-ray discs).

Unzip a spanned Zip file

To unzip a spanned Zip file, first insert the last disc of the spanned series and open the Zip file using WinZip; this will display the list of files and folders and allow you to extract them. WinZip will prompt you for each disc as needed to complete the operation.

If you have any questions about this information, please submit a Technical Support ticket.

Why is WinZip slow when extracting some files?     Will zipping files cause them to be of lower quality?
