« How do I expose a subset of partitions and remove the rest from view? | Main | What exactly does column-oriented mean? »

I have a very large file to uncompress. zip and gzip do not work!

Short answer: Use 7-zip. It contains large-file support.

$ unzip verylargefile.zip /destination_dir/
I/O error: File too large

Make sure your file system can handle LFS.

$ 7za e -o /destination_dir/ verylargefile.zip
