Why not upload the large file to OneDrive or Dropbox or other cloud storage and send an email "invitation" to the recipient? This allows the recipient the option of viewing the file or downloading it, or both.

Anybody know if the split files are part files or full format which can be viewed or listened to separately? Might be useful as MP3 splitter for audiobooks or music files. I suspect not, but if anybody knows, I'd appreciate finding out. Having no use for the program otherwise, I don't want to download and install it on the off-chance it might be useful.

If recipient needs to have same software installed in order to merge the split files, then (because this is not freeware) this software is practically useless. In addition, fearsome portable freeware rivals make Aplus File Splitter and Rejoiner look incompetent.

JR Split File is a portable freeware. You split the file into pieces and by default, a bat file is created for recipient to merge them.
Then you send them to the recipient.
The recipient needs to put all the split files and the “bat” file in the same folder.
The recipient does NOT need to have JR Split File in his computer.
The recipient double-clicks the “bat” file and the whole file is merged.

I suspect that this software may be similar to Chainsaw, which I used many years ago to split large files. After deciding the maximum size of each segment you wish to break the file down to (to fit on floppies, perhaps) the software would create several smaller files PLUS a small batch file. These would all be sent to the intended recipient who would then simply copy all the files onto their hard drive, click on the batch file and it would then automatically reform the segments into one large file - identical to the original. There was no need for the recipient to have a copy of the Chainsaw software.

I use chainsaw to cut tree for firewood. Works excellent since upgrade from hacksaw version (very slow and heavy on system resources).

I used Chainsaw in the day of the 1.44 floppy. Simple and effective program.
Program is not required to merge files and is freeware anyway.
Can be downloaded from: http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/File-Management/GS-Chainsaw.shtml#download

The program is simple to use.
Also it is simple to make mistake's.
If the order of the loaded files is wrong, the result is damaged.
Some time the result cann't be opened.
Other time the result can be opened, but the content is not the same as the original.

Today's giveaway is something I would not pay for. Splitting files is usually for sending someone, with Today's GAOTD, this someone will have to pay for Aplus, in order to rejoin the files. my recommendation is HJ Split http://www.hjsplit.org/ which is Free Fast and multi-platform, supporting Linux, DOS and Windows since Windows 3.11

Here's another free program I've used for many years: Martin Stoeckli's Splitter Light. Originally designed for floppys, it can split and reassemble files into any size you want.

Aplus software is otherwise concerned with and focussed on the pdf-format, so perhaps this program can split PDFs into tagged selections, that is into multiple smaller PDFs of your own choice?.

If the files are too big to send then it is probably worth compressing before splitting.

The free portable program below will do this, it allows a selection of different sizes or a custom size.

Or even faster: compress and split in one session.
7-Zip has that option:

What interest to use this software while "7zip" can do the job for free with more features such as : Strong AES-256 encryption in 7z and ZIP formats.

Anyway, thanks Giveway and Aplus developer for sharing.

don't forget the added benifit of using 7zip in that you can compress, CRC check integrity of the enclosed file, and probably even add the SFX Self-extracting module to the split archive to aid recovery and integrity confirmation at the recipients end!

Some commonly used email clients allow you to specify maximum single email size on an account or globaly and they will then split an attachment over as many as necesary seperate but associated MIME attached emails that similar MIME compliant email clients could then reassemble once all the sub-parts had been received.

I had reassembled split parts before using the MS-DOS and now command shell COPY command in Binary mode for none ASCII split files.

This apears to be a program that is specifically for a problem that does not exist in real life.

An app which in 2015 says it can help me split large files into smaller ones to fit onto floppy disks:

http://www.aplussofts.com/howto/splitlargetextfile.html

"Size where to split: Choose option to split files.

8.1) Floppy Disk: Split file size is up to floppy disk.
8.2) CD-R: Split file size is up to compact disk.
8.3) Free Size: Divide file on any size in bytes, kilobytes or megabytes. Split file size is up to you"


certainly brings the glow of nostalgia to today. Unfortunately though, nothing else, because as the developer says:

"In case of merging option, you have to select file extension in which type you want to merge smaller parts of file.
Note: It only merges file parts split by same software. It doesn’t merge other files"


If that's the case, then this proprietary splitting / merging would seem to require that not only must I install this on my own computer, the intended recipient of any emailed file chunks which I send must likewise have it installed on her / his computer. Or, er, not?

Ah well. Thanks, GAOTD, and thanks, too, to Aplus Software Inc for the Memory Lane trip back to 1995, but no thanks: this app may not have entirely lost itself in time, but it's certainly got lost in translation.

To merge split files does the recipent have to have this software installed too? It is not clear on GOTD but ploughing through the rather mangled English text on the APlus website it looks as if it must be required:

"You can email large file after splitting file into small chunks and send individual chunks with separate email. On the other side email receiver will merge all those small chunks and get original file without any data loss."

The website says that their software will not merge split files created by other software so it's odds on that APlus software is required to merge their own split files. Perhaps Aplus can comment?

I was wondering the same thing. I suppose the recipient could download the demo version. But then they would be restricted to 30 days of use. The publisher should have an "extraction only" version to address this issue.

Reply   |   Comment by gpc111  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

...so it means that file split by this software one could not use the old DOS command copy, to merge these files?
like
c:\>copy /b file1+file2+file3 merged_file

well, I believe one could always use 7zip or other archiving file and set the splitting size with in.

Reply   |   Comment by infinity  –  4 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+34)

By all means try the DOS copy+ routine on binary files and see what you get. Be sure to report back here.

The solution would be to provide the merge program free of charge and only charge for the splitter program much like Microsoft offers a free Word reader to read files written in MS Word.

There are two FREE windows programs that split/join files at least as well, if not better:

Thank you for your valuable suggestions, Gary Doyle.
Personally, I avoid cnet like the plague, therefore I would suggest to go to Softpedia instead, and download those tools from there.
Also, it is important to note that Free File Splitter comes with adware, so when installing this program, one should be very careful and uncheck that stuff.

Regards,

consuella

Avoiding something like a plague is near the very top of the most used cliches official listing.

As for this program, is working very well here, and will keep it.
