Additional notes:
  • When retrieving information on archive contents, Zip archive information Action supports multi-volume ZIP archives. However, when calculating file compression ratio (the relationship between total size of uncompressed files and ZIP archive size), the total archive size is calculated without including the size of header of each volume. Due to headers, there is a slight difference between single ZIP file and the same archive split to multiple volumes. However, it is rather insignificant (less than kilobyte per volume).
