Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This small executable effectively splits large files into manageable segments, though the process takes a lot of time. WinSplit's interface isn't eye-catching, but navigating through its few buttons and check boxes shouldn't prove difficult for any level of user. You can easily choose files to split and specify the destination path for the file pieces. The program splits files by size, number of segments, or by keyword in text documents. It also creates batch files to reunite split files and for easy file sharing. We found splitting files easy to start, but the process was especially slow for graphic and other media files. The program can split files of up to 2GB, though we experienced program crashes splitting the larger files. System administrators and users who send many files through e-mail will find this application useful, but not perfect. WinSplit delivered the job as promised, though users should be prepared for a slow process and the occasional program crash.

Developer's Description

Winsplit: Avoid being forced into the world of CD-Rs and Zip disks when you need to exchange large files between computers. WinSplit is a free utility that splits even 2GB files and more into e-mail or floppy-friendly bites, and re-joins the data into a single file at its destination. Three splitting options let you split the file by size, number of pieces, and at every instance of a particular word (when breaking up text files). There is also a feature that checks to ensure that all of the file pieces are an exact copy of the original.
