 Disks Splitter light 4.0 - the very small file splitting utility
This is a utility that you really just have to have around but rarely use. I've used a lot of different file splitters over the years and this one is one of the best. A couple weeks ago I had to take a large file to my dad's house. The file wasn't big enough to burn to a CD and too big for a single floppy. That's when it's time for Splitter. It's simple to use and it's so small you can just add it to one of the floppies to help join the files. I always put a file splitter in my Windows folder and add a shortcut to it into the Sendto menu. That way I can call it from the DOS command line and Run menu or right click on a file and send it to the splitter.
