Hello
I'm new here so please be gentle. I am trying to WINRAR a file into smaller sections...I have seen this done many times. I searched another forums and found advice on how to do this but it did not work and the file still won't split. This is not good when the file is 7gig. the advice is copied below and if some one out there could help i would be very appreciative
thank you
"Right click any file/folder you want to archive and split. Select "Add to archive" and new windown will be opened. You will see a field "Split in volume, bytes". It's dropdown menu and contains few choices, such as 1.44 MB (Floppy disk) or 700 MB (CD).
But you can write your own value here. For example, if you want your archive to be splitted into 10 MB parts, select nothing from this list but writew your own value
