Thread: How to break up big files?

  1. #1
    I downloaded a movie with two parts (CD1 and CD2) and both files were a little under 700mb. Now what I want to do is break up each CD into multiple parts so its not one huge upload and is download friendly to other users who may download it.

    Now, I know you use WinRAR, but each time I've tried to add the file to the archive and have the mb be 100 per thing for some reason it comes out with A LOT of parts rather then 7 or so.

    Does someone know what I'm doing wrong and can perhaps point me into the right direction so I can get this done?

    I thought HJsplit packs the files together to be one big file, not multiple parts so its upload and download friendly.

    Use winrar with the split volume option while compressing and you can change to any size you want.


    It is very easy and simple.

    HJSplit will enable you to split the large file into smaller chunks, which can be much more easily sent and stored. Later on these chunks can be re-joined using HJSplit itself or HJJoin.
