Then wouldn't it be nice if there was a big banner on the front page saying CANT DO IT ON LARGE (who knows how big ... it is a surprise) DATABASES. Is it really expected that someone looking for something to work would read all 3 years worth of posts to gleam this information.Lowlander wrote:This Addon can't create large ZIP archives (limitation of zip library used) something that has been discussed a long time ago (I ran into that issue some years ago). I don't remember the max size supported, but it isn't more than a few 100MB.
Or if not warn the user of the limits of the mini backup system before they put their trust in it .. at least enhance the message box to play a happy irish jig and have little fireworks with the message "You have reached the magical limit where this tool no longer works ... YEAH for you!!!"
Or maybe best ... ad the ability for the user to select an alternate zipping program (one that works for large files) that they may have .. say winzip, winrar etc .. and have the program use that.
Oh well .. thanks for the info. Now I know why i lost nearly a month of work.
