File Splitter and Joiner

File Splitter and Joiner lets you split your large files (like Zip archives, multimedia, song, music, movie, backup, archive document files...) into a set of smaller files called pieces and later combine the pieces to form the original file even without this software. These pieces are easier to copy to distribute over the Internet, networks or through E-mail; share with friends or colleagues; archive to CD, DVD, USB flash keys, Zip and other storage supports.

Interface Overview



1.The First Line Buttons: quick access button to "Split file" or "Join file" function.

2.The Upper Box: allows you to add file that you want to split and choose the destination folder where you would like to place the split file.

3.The Lower Box: allows you to choose the file size for the single parts either from the proposal list or enter a used defined file size using the arrows in the User-defined file size field.

Add Self-Joining Functionality to the split files set



File Splitter and Joiner lets you add Self-Joining functionality to your pieces. When File Splitter and Joiner splits your file into pieces, it can also make a Self-Joining program (true Windows executable file). This small program is able to join the piece files together in order to restore the original file. If you want to rejoin the pieces later without this software, please mark the checkbox for "Add Self-Joining Functionality to the split files set".

Select the Maximum sizes for the single parts



You can choose the maximum size for the single parts from the proposal list, including Floppy disk(1.44MB), 100MB Zip(TM) disk, 1GB Jaz(TM) disk, 4.7GB Single-layer DVD. Or you can enter a used defined file size using the arrows in the User-defined file size field. As soon as the file size is selected, it will tell you how many piece files will be created.

To split a file:



1.First you select the file you want to split by using the Browse... button.

2.Select the destination folder where you want to place the splitted files by using the Browse... button.

4.If you want to rejoin the pieces later without this software, please mark the checkbox for "Add Self-Joining Functionality to the split files set".
