Here is a program designed to perform only one task, but it performs really at its best, swiftly, and on almost every PC. Split, as its name suggest, is a file splitter. It is designed to work on every machine, from the old 286 to the Pentium-based PC (DOS 3.3 is enough to let it work). It asks for minimum space and memory to split large files in pieces fitting floppy disks. One can decide if splitting files by number of partitions (i.e. floppy disks) or by partition size (Split will tell you how many disks are required, then). The program is able, also, to check for identical files already existent (avoiding overwriting), if the partition size well fit the floppy disk's space, to verify file during splitting to avoid errors. You don't even need the program, to rejoin the file pieces. In fact, when splitting, Split creates a batch file that, once launched will provide to rejoin the pieces, checking if the target location is valid, if there are already files with the same name and so on. The files I splitted and rejoined had no error and worked finely. In few words, a program higly recommendable. Oh, I was missing the last feature. The program is free, if you like it let the author know, sending him an e-mail. It's the only effort he asks you for.
