{{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 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: [ FFSJ] or [ HJ-Split](slower option)
* On Apple Mac OS X: [ Split&Concat]
* On GNU/Linux and with in the console: <source lang="bash">split --bytes=2000M my_big_file.zim my_big_file.zim</source>
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".
