Sending huge files is always a hassle for many users. Besides the problem of how to send them out, users also need to consider whether the recipient is able to receive the files if they are too huge. If this problem has been annoying you, an alternate solution you can probably consider is to use a file splitter application, GSplit, to split the big files into a set of smaller files called pieces. You can thence email these pieces to recipients, upload to hosting sites, copy to removable media disks, send via instant messengers, etc.

GSplit is a free, versatile and reliable file splitter. With this splitter, users can easily split large files into various formats such as zip archives, music, video, images, backup file, documents, etc based on user-specified parameters. The whole splitting process is quite simple. Users just need to select the file, decide the destination folder where they want the split files to be kept and proceed to the splitting process. After the splitting process is completed, GSplit will automatically create an executable file. The recipient doesn’t need to install GSplit. He could just run the executable file and all the split files will be merged into its original format. Everything can be done with a few mouse clicks.

Generally, GSplit will split huge files into two basic file splitting options: disk spanned or blocked. With disk spanned option selected, GSplit will split the file in size auto-calculated by GSplit based on available free disk space. The application will ask users to insert the second disk to complete if the first disk is full. Users can split a file into a set of same size split files if they opt for blocked option. For instance, users can split a 500MB file into 5 pieces of 100MB files. Other notable features of GSplit include: store file properties like file dates and attributes, and restore them contrary to batch files; perform fast check to detect file corruption (if any); indicate the elapsed and estimated time, support multi languages and work well with all Windows OS.

Users who always do files transfer and intend to try GSplit can download it from the download page. There is another portable version if users do not want to install it to the system and prefer to run it from a removable disk such as the USB flash drive.
