[SOLVED]How to split a large file into a couple of smaller files?
I tried searching to no avail, so here goes.
I got this big 1 gigabyte file that I want to transfer to Windows, but the drive is NTFS, and I do not have a DVD Burner (But I do have a CD Burner), I want to split this 1gigabyte file into 2 500 MB files so that it will fit on two CDs.
It's actually a video file, I know rar supports splitting their archives up, but I am at a loss at how to do this from the command line. Can Ark split rar file up?
I need a way that does not require a Unix type enironment since I am trying to copy from a Linux partition to a Windows partition. I've tried install cygwin, but the domain is down and thus I can't download it's mirrors.txt file.
I am going to guess that it tries zipping them up before splitting them up.
zipsplit warning: missing end signature--probably not a zip file (did you
zipsplit warning: remember to use binary mode when you transferred it?)
zipsplit error: Zip file structure invalid (video.avi)
Even if I have to zip them up first I get this:
zipsplit error: Entry too big to split (video.avi)
