Anyone know of a filesplitter

Postby piglets222 » Thu Apr 28, 2011 1:41 pm

prefer easy to use, free


if not im gonna google, but i thought i'd ask first
just need something reliable for a one time use
i got this .log file thats half a gig, trying to open it in notepad gets me the message 'file is too large' and trying to open it in wordpad rapes the memory of TWO computers (seeing a process at 1,200,000k memory is freaky)

if i cant open the log its useless, might as well just delete it :(
(next task, finding how to limit the size of mirc logs without losing logs (overwriting) *bangs head on keyboard*

That happened to me also long ago, and I grabbed a program called "Large Text File Viewer" which works on all all operating sytems through XP. There is still a download link on CNet for it, but it's not recent, although I checked and the download is still available.

http://download.cnet.com/Large-Text-Fil ... 90541.html

I have not had to do this more than twice, so I would also have to try other options to help you more, but that is what I used and it worked really good.

Hope that helps.

Sorry piglets, my assumption was that your main intention was just to be able to view it easily, therefore you assumed you needed to split it just to view it. You could view it in whole, then back it up the same whether it's split or not, but that would be your choice.

Here is one file splitter that will work on all operating systems through Windows7

Text File Splitter 2.0.4

A very simple free file splitter is HJSplit

HJSplit is a popular freeware program to split and recombine files. The program is available on Windows, Linux and a variety of other platforms.

Why should one want to split and recombine files? For instance, think of a file of 50 Mb, and try to send it to a friend, post it in a newsgroup or upload it to a Website or FTP server. It is usually easier to send/receive, upload/download smaller parts than handle the entire file in one go.

HJSplit can also be useful for backups. A file of e.g. 10 gigabytes in size can be split into smaller parts which then can be burned to CD's, DVDs, copied to USB sticks or uploaded to an online backup service.

HJSplit for Windows and Linux support file sizes of over 100 Gigabytes, MD5 checksums, file-compare, "run without install" and both editions are fully portable.
