JR Split File has a function allowing you to split a big file into smaller files

JR Split File (For Windows 95/98/2000/NT/ME/XP)

Split a large file into smaller files so that they can be easily copied to floppy disks or transferred via e-mail.

Download size is 168 KB

The File Split function allows you to split a large file into smaller files and create a standard .bat file that can be used to reconstruct a copy of the original file.

This function is useful for breaking large text files into more usable segments or for breaking a file into segments to fit on multiple diskettes.

PLEASE NOTE: The original file is left intact - the "split" files are created from the original.

First select the file you want to split into smaller pieces. Click "!" button to open file selection dialog.

By default, the directory is the current JR Split File installation dir. You can change this by clicking on the "!" button. Do not select a floppy drive because JR Split File won't pause for you to insert disks.

Bytes per file: This is where you select the maximum size of the resulting files. For example, if you have a 4 MB ZIP file that you wish to put on diskette - you may wish to select the 1.44MB option from the size drop-down box. This would split the file into 3 segments and also create the .bat file needed to restore the files to the single original.

Template for splitting files: By default, this is the file name for the file you selected. HOWEVER, since this function uses a DOS based .bat file to reconstruct the split files - it is imperative that the Template file name conforms to DOS file name limitations. You should limit the Template file name to 8 characters with no blank spaces or special characters.

Generate batch file for merging: By default, this option is selected because without the .bat file, there is no way to restore the created segments into a copy of the original - it is recommended you leave the default.

After clicking the OK button - the selected file will be split into the desired directory and file size using a simple numbering system for new file extensions. For example, the split of massive.txt will result in massive.1, massive.2, massive.3, etc. and, of course, the massive.bat file that is used to reconstruct the segments into a copy of the original. All of the file segments and the .bat file must be in the same directory in order for the .bat to be run and function properly.
