Moving large files can sometimes be a pain, especially if the storage device does not have enough free space. However, a simple solution is to have these files split into multiple volumes. With the help of specialized applications like VY-Splitter it gets as simple as pressing a few buttons.
Lightweight and easy to use
The application is capable of running on nearly any computer, regardless of its configuration. It roughly takes about 200 Kb of space on your hard disk drive and the amount of system resources used is not something to worry about.
Running it brings up a pretty compact user interface, equipped with all available features. Putting the process in motion only requires you to specify the location of the desired file and hit the “Split” button.
Good but far from being a pro
Only a few other options are put at your disposal. Before deciding to chop a file into multiple pieces, you can also specify each chunk size either in Kb or Mb. Unfortunately, there is no implemented function that allows you to split into an exact number of volumes, automatically having size adjusted.
Moreover, you are not able to set a default destination folder for the newly created files, these being created in the same directory as the original file.
Needless to say that the application gives you the possibility to join files back into a large one. This process is flawless and easy, selecting either of the chunks being enough to bring all of them back together.
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that VY-Splitter is a straightforward and practical application you can use to chop down large files into multiple chunks of predefined size. It uses little of your system's resources and gets the job done well, in the blink of an eye.
