Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This handy tool is utilitarian in design but helps you quickly manage oversize files for easier storing or sending. File Chopper's no-frills interface is easy to navigate, especially with the helpful tool tips and user guide. After selecting a file, you can choose from a list of preset sizes for the output files, including a 1.44MB floppy disk or a 700MB CD, or create and use a custom file size. You also can opt to create a self-uniting batch file, so anyone can recombine the split files. Rebuilding files is equally simple and can be done with a few quick clicks. Other tools will help you with extracting a particular segment of a file, attaching smaller sections to an existing file and defining specific starting points for a split. In testing, this efficient tool was able to handle every file type we threw its way, and we were impressed with how quickly it worked, even when handling megasize files. Folks seeking a hassle-free way to divvy up their files will appreciate this application's simplicity and effectiveness.
