Split Byte 1.0
Split massive files into smaller, more manageable chunks

Split Byte is a tool for breaking large files into smaller segments for easier handling, then rejoining them at some later date.

This can be very useful if you need to work with a particularly large file: a multi-gigabyte video, say. It'll be too large to email, perhaps even save to CD or DVD, but if you use Split Byte to separate the file into chunks then it'll become much more manageable.

The core of the program is very straightforward. Point Split Byte at your file, choose the number of chunks you need (or the maximum chunk size), click Split, and you're done - the program will divide up the file on your behalf.

But there are also lots of additional features. You can choose to zip up the file before splitting, for instance; the program can encrypt your file, useful if it contains confidential data; you can even have the chunks sent via email when you're done.

Joining is similarly straightforward (point the program at the first chunk and it'll figure out everything else on its own).

And you even get an MD5 Checksum calculator to confirm that the split and join operations haven't corrupted the file (that is, it's the same).

Please note, by default the program will install a browser addon. If that's not what you want, be sure to choose the "Custom Setup" option during installation, and clear the relevant checkboxes. Then click "Decline" on any subsequent add-on related dialogs which might appear.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use file splitter with some useful extra features

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
