In case you are looking for a 'FREE' program that will enable you to do this, HJSplit can be a good solution. HJ-Split created by Freebyte.com in collaboration with various programmers is a popular set of freeware file-splitting programs.
HJSplit is very reliable, simple, small (file size: 304 Kb) and easy to use. Does not need to be installed or complicated DLLs, it just consists of one '.exe' file. Just click on hjsplit.exe and the program starts.
You can Download HJSplit 2.3 for absolutely FREE directly from the OFFICIAL website here. HJSplit supports many platforms (Windows 3.x/95/98/ME/2000/NT/XP, DOS, Amiga, Java, etc.).
In case that HJSplit app above is not yet enough, you might be interested in FFSJ below,
If you've ever used HJSplit (maybe as i mentioned before for sending large files via email?, files backup?, or etc), you must be familiar with files ending with .001, .002, .003, etc (those files are pieces from a larger file that has been split apart). Now with FFSJ, all those files are still supported (both split and join), Alternatively, you can split/join files ending with .__a, .__b, .__c, etc.
FFSJ by Le Minh Hoang consists of two main programs: File Splitter and File Joiner. File Splitter enables you to split a large file into small chunks which are easy to be sent and stored, while File Joiner allows you to join these split parts together so that the original file is restored.
