What are you Looking for?
This software is a fast and free file splitter that lets you split your large files, such as compressed archives, text and log files, backups, disk images, video and document files…, into a set of smaller files called pieces.
GSplit is very fast and efficient: it even splits very large files, with sizes higher than 4 GB, without any problem.
Disk spanned (split into a set of files varying in size auto-calculated by GSplit based on available free disk space and saved immediately to spannable removable disks) or blocked (split into a set of same sized split files). You may enter the size for each piece file, the number of pieces you want to obtain, or the number of lines/occurrences of a pattern by piece.
GSplit creates a small stand-alone executable file that will put all of the pieces back together. This executable provides your users with an intuitive Windows interface whose appearance can be customized according to your needs. Thus our free file splitter is not even required in order to restore the split file.
Perform fast checks (size, offset, CRC32) in order to detect file corruption and to give you the assurance that your files are successfully restored by your users. When a piece is corrupted, you are notified about it, so you just need to get a new copy of that piece, not the whole set.
File properties such as file dates and file attributes are stored into pieces, and restored automatically contrary to batch files.
Our free file splitter GSplit also offers batch and command line options for automation or build environments. Moreover, GSplit can work as a daemon and even split multiple files back-to-back in one time.
GSplit is really a free file splitter: no advertisement, no restrictions, no nags.
No registration is required.
You can distribute, install and use it free of charge, even for commercial purposes.
GSplit is a generic free file splitter but it also offers dedicated options for splitting text and log files.
Split large text and similar files such as large server logs and other CSV files by number of lines or occurrences of a specified pattern. Optionally insert headers into each piece file.
Customize piece files according to your needs (size, filenames, title, author…), leave additional space on disks, create pieces without tags or with custom headers (useful for text-based files like large server log or CSV files).
Show you elapsed and estimated times while splitting and uniting files. You can also pause/resume the splitting operation.
Keep settings into profiles and let you use these settings for different files, remember MRU files and folders, automatically try to find out the best splitting settings…
This video tutorial shows you how to get started with our fast and free file splitter GSplit. It was especially made for people who wish to see how to split a file and join piece files together in some steps. It does not cover all features though.
