Splits a large file into smaller ones, and joins them back
 
1.31 (See all)

Some times you need to divide a large file, because its several megabytes mammoth size makes it impractical to transport it or send it via email.
That is exactly what The File Splitter does: it splits a large file into smaller ones, allowing you manage each splitted piece more easily on an individual basis. Joining it back in the same file again is very simple. You simply double click in the autogenerated executable file you find in the folder you chose for the splitted pieces and they will automatically be joined in a single file equal to the original.

You can choose whether you want to split the file into a specified number of parts, or mark the maximum size of each of them (to adapt it to a floppy disk, a CD or a USB device, etc.). The program also offers the possibility of encrypting the divided file for greater security. The File Splitter is a tool designed to give them a size according with your needs. This way you can fit files in CD's that do not normally fit. The same goes for archives in DVD format. If, for example, you have a game and 7 GB does not fit on a DVD because it is 4 GB, with this application you may split it in half and save it separately, and then back to join it with the same program.

This program is a comprehensive and simple tool that resolves the problems with the files that are too long. In The File Splitter with just a click, files will be divided, as it is very user-friendly. In addition to quick and efficient, it is also a light processor. It is perhaps one of the fastest applications in this sector. Its installation includes everything you need, without further complications. A friendly interface makes things easy: simply select the files (as if you were to attach to an e-mail), and select the division settings. You can select the predefined division size, or the maximum size of each part, if you want to save it in a particular device: CD, DVD, USB and so on.

The File Splitter also generates an executable file to start the joining process. This allows the recipient to join the pieces without installing the software
