If like me you can't afford Zip drives and CD writers then this is a must have.

Planet Split does exactly what the title says, splits files. So if you have a 2.3 meg file say of some freeware program and you want to give a copy to your friend to save them the expense of downloading online, this is the kiddy for you.

It is simplicity itself to use. Fire it up, use the browser button to find the file you want to split, insert floppy in A: and click on start. You can even use an unformatted floppy, there is a format button as well. When it wants the next disk it alerts you. Once finished all you have to do is go to friends house, insert Disk 1 of the set and run the go.exe file and it rebuilds the file to hard drive. That's it, no configuring, no setting up just simple. You can do this with files up to 1 gigabyte in size and split to floppy, zip disk or CDR. Another feature is the "Mirror disk" which allows you to save the split to hard drive as if it were floppies and all you have to do is copy the mirror images to floppy at your convenience

If only all programs were as simple as this. Go get it now while they have reduced prices.
