C# Question

What is an alternate of ionic zip in C#?

I use Ionic.Zip to zip and unzip my data. But I find that Ionic.Zip is not capable of handling large file sizes (> 3GB).

So is there any third party tool that we can use to replace Ionic.Zip?

Answer

If you can use 4.5, it's now part of the BCL

Also, IMHO the 'de facto' third-party library for this is SharpZipLib from the SharpDevelop team:
