    I am archiving (zipping) some of my files so I can place them on file hosting sites online. However, I would like to know if there is a way to split my archived files into 2 smaller pieces.
    I have stuffit 11, but I see no place for me to do so. Does anyone know if I can?
    Thanks for the help!

    You can split files using a designated segment size (or customize the size using the "other" option) as a series of .sitx files using the DropStuff GUI.

    Or, you can use something like Fast File Saw & Joiner to split files into chunks using the .001/.002 format.

    There are other options as well, but either of the above should suit your purpose. The latter being more PC-friendly, if that matters.
