Editors' Review

Download.com staff
Despite a minor quirk in its design, this freeware app effectively breaks up large files and, unlike its competitors, can even split folders. Splitter light doesn't require installation and its small size makes it easy on your system resources, but its odd oval shape seems to cut off part of the text on the interface. Fortunately, this design flaw doesn't impact its functionality, and the file or folder splitting process is accomplished in just a few steps. In addition to locating files or folders with the built-in browser, we were impressed that you also could add them with the drag and drop method. Also commendable are the options to copy Splitter to the output directory for your split files or create a batch file so others can rejoin files without the program. Splitter light worked well in our tests on both files and folders of various sizes, and even though no help file is included, it should prove easy enough for the novice to use. This app's features and functionality make it stand out from other freeware splitters, and we recommend it for both the beginner and the expert looking for a cheap way to manage their large files.

Developer's Description

Split files into 1.44MB parts.

With Splitter you can split large files and directories to parts of 1.44MB or other sizes. Because Splitter is extremely small (55KB), you can deliver it easily with the first disk for unsplitting. Splitter splits files or whole directories (including subdirectories). You can select any size of parts you like. Splitter is able to handle very large parts (only limited by the operating system). No installation necessary, Splitter can run from a floppy disk. The date of the original files will be restored. * Drag & drop from the windows explorer. Splitter optionally creates batch files for rejoining. Full commandline support.

Version 4.0 features commandline support, batchfiles for joining.
