It happens many times that we have a file that is very large in size and we can not carry it in any storage media, then we wish to spilt the file in files of smaller size that can be transported easily and joined later on.
Whether you want to upload files over internet (like Rapidshare in which there is a limit of 200 MB) or just wish to gain some info, you can easily split files into small files that can be carried or uploaded easily. The advantage of this process is that splitting takes only seconds and the files can be easily joined as well.
