Zip Files – 4GB Limit?

It appears that originally, Zip files had a 4GB limit, and the software that is part of the Mac OS is only able to open files under this size

If you have zip archives over 4GB then you will need software capable of extracting this, thankfully there is The Unarchiver, a free app fromĀ http://wakaba.c3.cx/s/apps/unarchiver.html

Download and install the App into Applications by dragging it there

For ease of use I will put the icon in the dock, then you can just drag a zip archive to the icon to begin extraction
