Distribution: Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)
Version: GNOME2.3.7 2.3.x
Synopsis: archiving a file on multiple disks
Please describe your feature request:
I want to make archives on multiple disks, and I want to have the
ability to unpack an archive which was packed on multiple disks like
under windows, I want it to be possible on floppys zips etc...
many thanx for your reading :)

Feature requst. If desirable, for 2.7.x
updating the version
Recently there was a similar request made for nautilus-cd-burner, see bug
163662. Could these two issues be combined? If file-roller would create
multi-volume archives (like tar -M) maybe there should be a option to burn these
to a CD/DVD.
Or it could be done the other way around. If nautilus-cd-burner encountered
something that would not fit on a single disk, it would call file-roller to
create an archive and then burn this archives to multiple disks _without_
creating an ISO image around the archive.
To unpack such an archive file-roller would then just read from the device.
Maybe file-roller could be called upon after the automatic mounting had failed.
Another idea would be that whoever discovered the disc-change (dbus?) would
check the header of the media and if it was an archive call on file-roller
instead of mount.
Just some wild ideas (-:
Some archivers has this ability included, AFAIK this is multivolume archives.
Please include this possibility into file-roller
Please, multivolume is a good feature and file-roller should suport it...

bugzilla.gnome.org is being replaced by gitlab.gnome.org. We are closing all old bug reports and feature requests in GNOME Bugzilla which have not seen updates for a long time.
If you still use file-roller and if you still see this bug / want this feature in a currently supported version of GNOME (currently that would be 3.38), then please feel free to report it at https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/file-roller/-/issues/
Thank you for creating this report and we are sorry it could not be implemented (volunteer workforce and time is limited).
