break you files in little pieces





ralcantara
In this example the files will have pieces of 10MB.

1) Create the shell split.sh
#!/bin/bash

file=$1
prefix=$2

# 10MB and suffix numeric
split --bytes=10485760 $file -d $prefix


2) You can use like this:
$ ./split.sh <your_big_file> <prefix_name_of_pieces>

I had a tiny little program that splits files into pieces. I had it since the time I was using floppies. Just select the file u want to split and tell it to split into 1.44mb pieces, and it would break the file into pieces that would fit into floppy disks.
There would also be a rejoiner software in one of the split files so that once u take the disks to the destination, just double -click and it would start building back the file again.



Now, it is helpful in fitting giant video files into USB sticks or when sending large files by email when there is an attachment size limit or storing files online when there is a file size limit imposed.

Even Winrar or Winzip or the free 7zip would have options to split and span a file across multiple storage devices with the extra advantage of compression too.



For a portable, no-frills file-splitter, check out these freewares to keep handy in your USB stick.

I would definitely recommend having a tiny portable filesplitter in ur USB drive along with a tiny taskmanager, antivirus, pdf reader, file compressor - the works ...
