Splits large files into smaller segments to allow for easy archival to CD-R, Zip or floppy disks. It uses a cryptographic algorithm to insure data integrity and runs as a stand-alone executable - there is nothing to install. Full help file included.
Version: 4.6AccuSplit is designed to split large files and computer videos into smaller segments to allow for easy archival to external media like DVD, CD-R or floppy disks.

Operating System: Windows
These file segments can then be recombined at a later time into an exact copy of the original file. The application is capable of segmenting and then correctly reconstructing ANY file, even ultra-large Windows Backup files exceeding 150GB.
To insure that the file reconstructed from the file segments exactly matches the original source file AccuSplit incorporates an advanced cryptographic algorithm that computes an MD5 Message Digest for both the original and reconstructed files. An MD5 match between these files indicates with absolute certainty that no data was lost during the file split and reconstruction process.
AccuSplit also includes the capability to create RAID-formatted file segments.
In this mode the software creates file segments that are embedded with a very powerful RAID-style error correction mechanism which allows it to correct for data errors on damaged media - errors ranging from a single corrupted data byte on a scratched CD to an entirely missing file segment are fully correctable with this option.
AccuSplit also includes a special Video Smart Split mode that can split AVI (including DIVX / XVID / INDEO / DV-AVI), WMV, WMV-HD, DVR-MS, and MPEG-1 format files (including Video-CD) into "independently playable" segments without a lengthy video re-rendering process. Now you can split your large videos into CD-sized (or any other size) segments and play them back directly from the CD - no file reconstruction is required.
The software also a includes a Video Preview option that allows the user to manually adjust the location of the file split points - avoiding splits in the middle of an important scene.
AccuSplit runs as a stand-alone executable - there is nothing to install, doesn't include any annoying AdWare plug-ins, and runs under Windows [95 / 98 / ME / NT / 2000 / XP / Server2003 / Vista].
