File joiners and splitters break apart large files into smaller segments that can be joined together easily. They make it possible to share, upload, and download files and data much too large for the typical PC to handle. If you share files online, over private networks, or via devices like thumb drives, you probably know how useful file joiners and splitters can be. HJ-Split is an easy-to-use application that bundles several versatile splitter and joiner tools from Freebyte. This portable freeware runs without being installed, making it a useful addition to portable devices. HJ-Split handles files up to 100 GB in size, so it can also split backup archives.

HJ-Split's ultrasimple interface has six buttons, four of which access tools: Split, Join, Checksum, and Compare; and About and Exit buttons, with Web links on the About button and the interface that access an online Help file. This program is ultrasimple to use, too. Clicking Split or Join calls up simple dialogs that involve browsing for source and destination files, setting the split file size, and pressing Start. The tool automatically splits and numbers the files and saves them to the destination folder. We successfully split several large files, including multigigabyte files, using HJ-Split, and then turned around and joined them again, all in a few minutes. HJ-Split simplifies the joining process by identifying the .001 file in the folder for selecting. Once you've selected the first file, the program automatically fills in the sequence, so you never start with the wrong file (and finish with a corrupted mess). Whether joining or splitting, HJ-Split worked quickly, with a green progress bar tracking the job. The Compare tool quickly compared the size of two specified files, which is handy for making sure they're the same size before you start to combine them. To use the Checksum generator, we simply browsed to a file and clicked Start. When the checksum was ready, we clicked Copy to copy it to the clipboard for further use.

The splitter tool's progress bar pop-up was a bit sticky, hanging around after the job was done, but that's the limit of our issues with HJ-Split. It's fast, free, ultrasimple to use, and completely portable. It's also recommended.

"Corrupt download"

April 26, 2013  |  By RNRBetaTester

 |  Version: HJ-Split 3.0

Pros

None, the file path is corrupt

First time i've seen cnet get hacked like this... thought they were more secure

Cons

I know at least adware was installed because i didn't get the program I was looking for, my homepage changed, and I have a new tool bar... When I didn't agree to anything and went through the cnet downloader

Summary

This was a total bash of cnet's integreity, don't download...

"Slow, Doesn't handle files over 2GB"

September 17, 2012  |  By JimmB216

 |  Version: HJ-Split 3.0

Pros

Single executable file can be easily copied to any computer. Very simple interface.

Cons

Doesn't appear to handle truly big files. Trying to split a 14GB file, it indicated 100% done when it had copied only 2GB, and it took a long time to get that far. I gave up and found another app that worked much faster.

Summary

Try Gsplit instead.

"Works but slow"

April 16, 2012  |  By MicroTest

 |  Version: HJ-Split 3.0

Pros

Didn't encounter any problems

Cons

Splitting large files takes ages."Glary Utilities" built-in File splitter or KFK-file splitter are much faster!It might not matter if the file you want to split is small but try splitting a 4GByte file...

Summary

When I found out how much faster the other file splitter were I ditched it.

"BEWARE ! HIJACKER MALWARE INCLUDED "Blekko""

March 24, 2012  |  By mikemtn55

 |  Version: HJ-Split 3.0

Pros

Might be a good program if hijacker malware were not included. "Blekko" installs even when unchecked during installation.

Cons

Malware "Blekko" (browser hijacker) included in download, even if unchecked during installation.

Summary

CNET, Please get rid of this malware infested download !

"Does the Job"

November 08, 2011  |  By TigerCatBrandon

 |  Version: HJ-Split 3.0

Pros

- Simply Gets the Split Done (Including Multiples and Big Files)
- Strong Freeware License - Business or Personal
- Small program that can be put on your media

Cons

- No advanced features
- Unmovable Progress Bar in the Center of your Screen

Summary

I have used MaxSplit, and I found this to be somewhat simplistic in comparison. MaxSplit lets you choose a number of splits and will auto-calc the sizes. HJ-Split has you put in the size. MaxSplit also lets you put it on multiple discs and prompts to put next disk in. HJ-Split seems to be made for on-hard drive splitting.
