HJSplit program description
HJSplit is a program that can split a file of any type and size into smaller parts. It can also join these parts back together again to restore the original file.
What is the use of a program like HJSplit? Think of a file of 20 Mb, and try to send it to a friend in one go. Using email this does not succeed, it is simply too large, and how to put it onto a floppy? HJSplit will enable you to split the large file into smaller chunks, which can be much more easily sent and stored.
HJSplit can also assist you in creating backups of very large (multi-gigabyte) files. Just split a 10 Gb file into smaller 640 Mb parts, and burn them to CD's using standard CD-writing software.
Restoring these files can be done using HJSplit as well, using the 'join' function. Alternatively, you can use HJJoin for this, which is a tiny and specialized program for joining files.
HJSplit is very reliable, simple, small and easy to use. It does not need any installation or complicated DLLs, it just consists of one '.exe' file. This means that you can also run it directly from a floppy or CD-Rom as well.
