SplitFile's goal is to split (chop) big file in smaller segments to be able to store them in floppy disks or CDs (these are just examples, the target size is fully customizable).
The main feature if compared to other programs like this, is the ability to support very large files and to being configured to increase performances if used with fast disks ( adjusting the read and write buffer up to 32 times the commonly used value).
- A lot of size preset: not only standard ones (floppy and CD-R) but also uncommon ones (ZIP disk, 800MB CD-R, DVD-R)
- You can choose to split the file according to the desiderated size or to the number of parts you need
- Several units selectable (from bytes to GB). Only SplitFile let you split GB of data!
- You can choose the read/write buffer to improve performances (SplitFile's exlusive feauture)
- You can pause the task
- Two (2) join methods: through the Graphical User Interface ( GUI ) of this program, or through an executable file that anyone can use, even if they do not have SplitFile.
- You can choose to be asked before overwriting a file that already exists
- You can directly Split/Join the files in a destination folder different from the source one(to easily find the files) and also on different drives (to speed up the process)
- It is freeware
