Editors' review

This simple utility offers a hassle-free way to split most oversize files, and you'll be pleased to find it won't cost you anything to use. Free File Splitter's tiny interface is simple enough for the novice to understand without even opening the help file. Built-in browsers make it easy to find the file you want to divide and to choose a destination for the split files. Enter the size for the split files in kilobytes or megabytes and hit the Split button. The number of split files will depend on the size of the original file and the output size you select. The process is quick and effective, and it automatically creates a BAT file that allows anyone to recombine the files. The only flaw we found was that the program could only handle files up to 10MB, despite the publisher's promise that it would handle any file size. That said, this is a very handy freeware tool that anyone can use to manage larger files for storing or sending via e-mail.

    "Not what I was looking for"

    December 24, 2007   |   By haileywagamon

    Version: Free File Splitter 1

    Pros

    It was small and fast...

    Cons

    I really need the splitter to keep the lines together...it would split a line right in 1/2. It would be nice to have the option to split after a carriage return.

    "Description overrates product ability"

    March 21, 2006   |   By Mike65053

    Version: Free File Splitter 1

    Cons

    Description said "There are no limitations on the file size, meaning that you can use the program to split huge files into any size you wish. " I want to break a 10.5 gig file into 4 gig files to burn to DVD for archive. Software replies "Error: Size is too large" when I attempt this. Obviously you can not split file into any size you wish.

    "Works great, fast and free; No need for any programs to rejoin"

    December 29, 2005   |   By sharpweb

    Version: Free File Splitter 1

    Pros

    I particulary like this program the best out of two free splitters I tried. I tried this first because it can rejoin them without a program. When the splitting occurs, a .bat file is automatically created. The .bat file is a simple DOS command copy /b all the pieces back into one. That means if you send the files to someone, they can rejoin them without them needing the program. The program works by clicking on a filename, clicking an output directory and a user specified split size. The split size is inputted as a number with a KB or MB radio button.

    Ok, so after I was already convinced on this program, I decided to try another one and do a speed test with another program that had great reviews (the 41Kb one). I noticed immediately it has a splice button which means you/recipient has to use the program to join them. Since the programs dont need to be fancy, speed is the thing I really want.

    Ok, so I take a 730Mb ISO file for my test and I'm using a 1.0 Ghz with Ultra DMA 66 drives.

    I chose 100Mb chunks. This program split it in 42 seconds and pasted it (with the self-generated .bat file using DOS' copy /b command) in 1:37. The other program was 56 seconds to split and 2:27 to join them (using its own program to join).

    So with that in mind, it doesn't take a genious to figure this one out. This program is definitely going onto a CD for archiving :)

    Cons

    None that I can think of, except it doesn't split in 1 second
