How To Split A Large File Using WinRar

You have a very large file, something a large as 14GB, that is about three DVDs, but you want to fit the file in DVD. How can you split a big file into multiple chunks and burn them unto a DVD? WinRar is the best applications to not only split big files in to several chunks but also to compress them while splitting.

Here is how to split a large file into several small files using WinRar

To start splitting, Right Click on the file that you want to split, choose the option Add to archive.

WinRar automatically assigns a name for the new archive it is going to create. If you don’t want a default name, you can change it as appropriate.

Under the option Split to volumes, either enter the desired maximum size of each file chunk or choose an appropriate size from the available drop down option. In my case I entered 5 MB for each chunk of file.
Click Ok and wait for few seconds. WinRar compress the source file and splits it in to several files.
