zip foo.zip foo
zip warning: name not matched: foo

A 3.4 GB file.
That is big...

If you get that error message, it is because the file foo does not exist in the current directory.

Talking

ohh trust me its in the same directory, thats why i was confused about the error, something like this file is to large to zip would be more helpful

i tried gzip and it works fine

Yes, that is true.
Zip has some size restrictions.

I always forget about that.
Now I remember why I stopped using Zip.
