      Description

      This is an issue I'm having with the Backup Plugin. I didn't see it listed as
      a "Subcomponent", so I picked a random one...

      Hudson 1.323, inside Tomcat 5.5, on top of Server 2003
      Backup plugin: 1.2

      I've configured the Backup Manager to create a .ZIP file. Hudson is
      successfully creating the file, but when I try to open it with Windows'
      native .ZIP file support, I get the message "The Compressed (zipped) Folder is
      invalid or corrupted." If I try to use WinZip, the error is "error: start of
      central directory not found; Zip file corrupt. Cannot open file; it does not
      appear to be a valid archive." The file being created is ~13GB, in case that
      makes a difference.

      I can't say this used to work but now doesn't – this is the first time I've
      installed the Backup plug and tried to use it.

          Hi,
          As far as I know maximum size of a single zip file is 4Gb and the maximum number of files is 65535 per archive.
          With backup file ~ 13GB my guess is that you exceeded both limits .
