    I'm trying create 200 MB rar files out of a 700 + MB directory. When I check "split archive" and select "user defined" under the volume size dropdown and click create rar, it creates 500+ rar archives!!!! Nowhere does it ask me how big I want the volume size for "user defined"

    Does anyone know how to use this app? I mean, I know how to alternatively archive into 200 mb parts (zip them, split & concat the zip file) but that requires the user to unarchive twice.

    Thank you

    I am stuck with this aswell, how do you create a 200MB rar file?

    for the time being, I just select all the files, right click--> create archive of these x items (makes a .zip containing all the files you selected). And then use spit&concat to create zip.001, zip.002, ... , zip.00x .

    It's more roundabout because the receiver has to unarchive twice, but it's an ok substitution for rars until I can find out how to do this.:mad:

    I just got 500 + and growing 1.5 mb files. Does anyone have a solution to this? It was funny to watch for a while until it filled up all of my desktop, on my externals as well. :p

    same thing happened to me i got 600+ 1.5. I searched the whole program seems to be nothing. not even a help file when you click help. seems someone got lazy and forgot these 2 necessary things we need. but then again its free so dont complain. lol
