I found this in the Audacity help file:
"The largest file size for a WAV file is 4GB (this is the limit for the WAV format)."
Seems like you should be able to combine files with the concatenate operation using the copy command in a command prompt. You need to add the /b command switch so it handles the files in binary format:
copy file1.wav + file2.wav + file3.wav newfile.wav
This will copy the three files in the example to a new file but will only play to the end of file1.wav and stop. I don't know what Zip or 7Zip does to multiple files when they are appended to an archive.
I think a better tool like Audacity is needed and it can utilize all of the hard drive that is available if you want. It has a gauge that indicates the storage space available.
I would say you need to look at compression / codec tools (mp3, mp4) if the length of play time is what you are looking for. Working with this size of files is going to get slow and tedious.
