I succesfully run backup by using "zip format engine" and upload to remote FTP server. The result is shown as attached. I finally see 9 split files in my remote FTP server and they are saved as .z01 .z02 to .z09.

The problem is I could not transfer those split files via command wget to another server which it shows error: "Directory or Files are not found" but if the backup does not split, it will be saved as .zip and it works normally.

can we set the splitting backups to be saved as zip? because I will be extracting the files remotely not in my local computer.

when you're splitting an archive (no matter the extension), you'll need all the files, including the one ending with .zip, .jpa, .jps etc etc.
In your case, you need the .zip archive with the same name and then start extracting it: if will automatically follow the data in the next parts.
