Splitting Files…

Share With
Many times we have to transfer big files. But due to bad network or bad connection transfer time outs when transferring such a big file.To override this, you can split this file into small size files, transfer it and then join it again.

Here are the steps for it.

Make sure you have root privilages to do this.

1) Login to the shell where the file is stored.

2) Run the command
split –bytes=sizeoffileyouwanttosplit filename
(split –bytes=1000M backup.tar.gz)

3) Copy the files to destination.

4) Join them once again using the command.
echo file1
