It works!

I needed to split a large (65 GB) zip file into smaller files, but all the the methods I read about using Terminal did not work. I found this app, and from their web site I was able to download a trial copy, and IT WORKS!
Simple intuitive interface. Expensive, but I had already spent several hours with Terminal, so I consider this money well spent.
Other reviews say it did not work. Maybe v 3.0.3 fixed things. It worked for me!

Hi there!

Thanks for your review. Are you still experiencing this issue?

Can we go back ate Archiver 2?

I was very pleased with Archiver and Archiver 2, but Archiver 3 under MacOS 10.13 (High Sierra) doesn’t work. No matter what files I feed Archiver 3 it attempts to open them. It simply will not archive anything regardless of the settings. Hopefully this will be fixed soon but in the meantime it is unsuseable

The issue has been corrected and Archiver 3 has been restored to my good graces. It supports a wide variety of archive formats including my personal favorite RAR.
