How to Split and Unite Files

G. D. G. Software Products offer a FREE program that I have found very useful as of late because I have been trying to manage many large files I have on my computer. The program is called GSplit. It has one main purpose and that is to allow you to split files into any file size increments you wish from kilobytes to gigabytes. At first, it may not be immediately obvious how one can use this program.

Sometimes one needs to send large files as attachments on emails but with today’s large file types it is hard to find an email provider which allows you to attach files 50 MB or larger. With GSplit, you can take a 100 MB file and split it into 2 50 MB pieces. It also creates a small executable file which will parse the files back together and make them usable again. This is useful because not many people have GSplit which also comes pcked with GUnite which also allows you to unite the files you split into pieces.

For those with Mac’s though, you are out of luck. According to the GSplit website, the minimum and operating system requirements are:

  • Microsoft Windows® 7, Vista, XP, 2008, 2003, 2000, ME, 98, 95 or higher.
  • 128 MB RAM (Recommended: 256 MB RAM or greater).
  • For Windows 95 users: you must have the COMCTL32.DLL update version 4.72 or higher; HTML Help 1.1 or higher; and Microsoft Tahoma and Verdana fonts. You already have these components if you installed Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0+.

In short: If you ever need to split large files into smaller pieces, download this program. It is small and easy to use, so it is probably a good idea to have it on hand anyway.
