The segment files can be written either directly onto diskettes, or into a directory on the hard disk.

Here are a few components that lets you set a file segment size:
Segment size text box

This is the most important part, here you must either enter manually or by using other commands a file segment size.

You can enter the file segment size in Bytes, KB - Kilobytes, MB - Megabytes or GB- Giga bytes

To choose the file segments size mode select appropriate radio button


The smaller file segment size allowed is 1024 bytes and there is no limit how big the segment might be.

Sprintbit File Manager can split all kind of files regardless of its size.



Here is a drop down menu that includes some file size presets you can choose. If you choose a preset then the Segment Size control will be filled with the preset values.

The default is User Defined, which means that you need to calculate the file segment size yourself.


Split file into the same folder

If checked then a selected file will be split into the same folder.


If unchecked the file is split into a destination folder.
Destination folder means the other File Browser when you are working with File Manager or Multi File Manager

If you are attempting to split file selected in other features that have only one File Browser like Single Browser then this option will be ignored.
