I have a simple backup server that rsyncs several network shares and then compresses them into a zip file that is loaded onto tapes.
zip -r /media/1tb/backup/compressed/reports.zip /media/1tb/backup/nightly/reports/
And about half way through i get
adding: media/1tb/backup/nightly/reports/active/aa010aq/rpts.2009.12.15/aa010aq.datzip I/O error: File too large zip error: Output file write failure (write error on zip file)
This is on a standard ubuntu server.
