{{FAQ_entry|question=কোথায় আমি নতুন বিষয়বস্তু খুঁজে পেতে পারি?|answer=Kiwix uses the [ ZIM format]. We release [[{{ll|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 [ Book creator] on Wikipedia to generate your own ZIM files.}}
{{FAQ_entry|question=My ZIM file is too big, what should I do?|answer=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 store big 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: [ HJ-Split]* On Apple Mac OS X: [ Split&Concat]* On GNU/Linux and with the console: split --bytes=2000M my_big_file.zim my_big_file.zim 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". To be readable by Kiwix, all chunks must be located in the same folder. Open then the xxx.zimaa file with Kiwix.}}
{{FAQ_entry|question=কেন কিউইক্স PPC ম্যাকসমূহের জন্য উপলব্ধ নয়?|answer=আমাদের কাছে কোন PPC স্থাপত্যকৃত ম্যাক নেই এবং এই স্থাপত্যটি অধিক পুরানো।}}
{{FAQ_entry|question=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?|answer=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.}}
{{FAQ_entry|question=How do I check the integrity of my ZIM file?|answer=You can retrieve the checksums for each file we serve online using this pattern: <source>kiwix-filename.zim.mirrorlist</source>Example: <source></source>}}
{{FAQ_entry|question=I can't copy Kiwix on my USB flash drive because the index files (*.idx directory) are too big.|answer=USB flash drives are often formatted using the FAT32 filesystem which can't store files bigger than 4GB. We recommend to use [ exFAT] or [ NTFS] which can deal with big files and are broadly supported.}}
