Quickly and easily break apart files for emailing or moving across networks with this freeware file splitter, but don't expect split media file pieces to play.
GSpilt installs easily and works as a service from your context menu or through a Mac-like interface. With GSplit, you can simply point to a file and choose to split it. You can set the utility to default to a set number of pieces and specific placement, or have it question you each time. Using the novice-friendly interface is almost as easy. You follow the well-designed menus and answer simple questions. The program gets easier to use every time you split a file. Knitting the pieces back together is the easiest we've seen. The pieces are numbered and you simply execute the first one. Gsplit opens an informational dialog and combines the pieces almost instantly. Since the pieces are self-knitting, you don't need to send GSplit to those receiving your split files.
GSplit breaks apart any type of file, but isn't able to break apart media files into playable pieces. Free, novice friendly, and complex enough for advanced users, GSplit is one of the easiest recommendations we've made.
GSplit is a free file splitter that lets you split your large files into a set of smaller files called pieces, easier to copy to floppies, CD, DVD or any removable disk; distribute over the Internet, networks; send by email or with file hosting services; share with friends and colleagues. GSplit also generates small self-uniting programs when splitting files, so anyone even without GSplit may restore your split files automatically. GSplit can split very large files (larger than 4 GB) and it provides you with a lot of splitting options (in addition to five splitting methods, including functions for large text files like server logs). You can load/save settings into profiles, and also automate it. Finally it features an intuitive graphical user interface (with skin support) that makes operations easy and fast. Context-sensitive help and animated tutorials are also available.
Version 3.0.1 includes new Check For Updates feature in Help menu and fixes the bug, splitting by count of lines did not always work fine if the internal memory buffer size was superior to 64kb.
