Remove documentation about splitting ZIM files
My ZIM file is too big, what should I do?</translate>|answer=<translate><!--T:26-->
USB flash drives and memory cards are often formatted using the FAT32 filesystem which can't store files bigger than 4GB. Kiwix is Better use exFat, or any modern filesystem, and then you will be able to deal with 2GB splitted ZIM files. The splitted store big ZIM files must be named xxx.zimaa, xxx.zimab, xxx.zimac, etc. To split a ZIM file you may use:</translate><translate><!--T:27-->* On Microsoft Windows: </translate>[ HJ-Split]<translate><!--T:28-->* On Apple Mac OS X: </translate>[ Split&Concat]<translate><!--T:29-->* On GNU/Linux and with the console:</translate> split --bytes=2000M my_big_file.zim my_big_file.zim <translate><!--T:41-->You can also download a pre-splitted version of the ZIM file by downloading a pre-indexed/portable ZIP file and copy the chunks from the directory "data/content".</translate> <translate><!--T:30-->To be readable by Kiwix, all chunks must be located in the same folder. Open then the xxx.zimaa file with Kiwix.</translate>}}
I have downloaded a ZIP file (pre-indexed ZIM file) but I can't unzip it, the file seems to be corrupted. What should I do?</translate>|answer=<translate><!--T:17-->
Use an unpacking software which supports the ZIP64 format (ZIP format for big files), like for example [ 7-zip]. If this still fails, then your file was corrupted during the transfer, please restart the download using BitTorrent, then it will work.</translate>}}
How do I check the integrity of my ZIM file?</translate>|answer=<translate><!--T:43-->
You can retrieve the checksums for each file we serve online using this pattern: <source>kiwix-filename.zim.mirrorlist</source>Example: <source></source></translate>}}
