The point of it
The idea is to be able to cut up a big file into pieces, so that you can copy it to floppy disks or cdroms. Otherwise how can you get a 5MB file onto 3 or 4 floppy disks and transfer it to another pc?
Naturally on the other pc, you will later want to restore the chunks to one file.
How to do it: to copy a file
|1.||Specify your "file to chunk" (the big one you want to copy)|
|2.||Specify your "drive & folder" (where you want to copy the chunks to. If to A: you will be asked to put in a new formatted floppy for each chunk.)|
|3.||Specify the "size of each chunk" (default = 1,400K, which fits on a floppy)|
|4.||Specify whether to "compress while chunking" (compresses the file as it goes along)|
How to do it: to restore a file
|1.||Specify your "first chunk" (the first chunk you made using this program)|
|2.||Specify which folder to "restore to" (where you want the results)|
|3.||Specify whether to "delete chunks afterwards" (if they are not needed)|
