    Use the Terminal

    Use the command-line split program already installed on your Mac.

    $man split

    -> split -- split a file into pieces

    I don't want to hijack your thread, but I have a split .iso file (with extensions .iso.001 , .iso.002 , etc.). How would I recombine that into a .iso file?
