This function splits one (large) file up into multiple smaller files so that they can be placed on smaller media (e.g. ZIP drives, ...) or sent by email. The multiple files can be combined again to recreate the original file. Krusader and Total Commander© split/combine functions are compatible. To split a file choose → or Ctrl+P: a Split dialog will open to confirm the operation.
If the name of the original file is
foo, then the name of the smaller files will
foo.000 foo.001 foo.002 etc.
There is no theoretical limit in the number of smaller files, but
it is recommended to limit the number to a maximum of 1023 files.
Krusader creates a
foo.crc file. This file contains the name,
size and the crc checksum of the original file. It is possible to
combine the file without the
foo.crc file but in this case
Krusader cannot check if the original file was
An example of a
filename=foo size=432998467868 crc32=21EB719A
To combine the multiple files choose, select a partial file
foo.xxx and choose
Ctrl+B. The target directory is the
inactive panel and can be changed. The file names must be
numbered in ascending order:
foo.001, foo.002, foo.003 etc. or
have letters in ascending order: ("
fileaa, fileab, fileac etc. If
foo.crc is found in the same directory as the
partial files, Krusader will use this file to check
the combined file for errors.
