I need to create an archive. But I also need to chop it into multiple files with a max size of 1GB per file. The format is not important (zip, rar, 7z) as long as I can compress on Linux and decompress on any other OS (Windows included). How can I do it with 7zip in a single pass?

This worked for me: 7z a -ttar -v1G <output_name> <input_name>. You can replace -ttar and -v1G with the format and size that you need.

    Set type of archive

    Create volumes
