Use this parameter to specify maximum file size for the individual files that can be extracted on disk and in memory in Symantec Protection Engine. The MaxExtractSize parameter accepts a value in MB. The maximum extract file size that you can specify for individual files in tar, rar, and zip containers is 30719 MB (approximately 30 GB). For other containers, you can specify a maximum extract file size of 1907 MB (approximately 2 GB) for its individual files.
For example, If you specify 20480 MB as the maximum limit, then the decomposer can extract individual files each of size up to 20480 MB from top-level container file of type tar, rar, and zip. For any other top-level container file type, the limit is still 1907 MB.
