Where can I find new content?</translate>|answer=<translate><!--T:4-->
Kiwix uses the [http://openzim.org ZIM format]. We release [[Wikipedia in all languages|our own ZIM files]] which are available for download in the Kiwix library (in the software). You can also use the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Book Book creator] on Wikipedia to generate your own ZIM files.</translate>}}

My ZIM file is too big, what should I do?</translate>|answer=<translate><!--T:26-->
USB flash drives and memory cards are often formated using the FAT32 filesystem which can't store files bigger than 4GB. Kiwix is able to deal with 2GB splitted ZIM files. The splitted ZIM files must be named xxx.zimaa, xxx.zimab, xxx.zimac, etc. To split a ZIM file you may use:
* On Microsoft Windows: [http://www.jaist.ac.jp/~hoangle/filesj/ FSJ-Lite],
* On Apple Mac OSX: [http://loekjehe.home.xs4all.nl/Split&Concat/ Split&Concat]
* On GNU/Linux and with the console: split --bytes=2000M my_big_file.zim
