Ah I didn't realize there was a size restriction. But obviously 7 has it fixed cuz I did it just fine.

(Good thing I've got 7zip on my Vista PC at the dorm )

If that's the case when he was telling me about 7's unzipping capabilities then I guess he didn't mention .rar files and it was only my imagination. But it CAN do .zip files over 4 gigs.

PS: he's got a master's degree in some sort of computer engineering field (I keep forgetting precisely what.) I'm sure he knows exactly what a proprietary format is.
