    Hi everyone thanks for reading, I am new on the forum, I wonder if this is the place to ask for help.
    My problem is that I have Big Files that I want to transfer from my mac to my PC, since they are greater than 4 gb, I can't use an external hard drive on Fat32 config due to the size limitations. Is there any program/script that can split this big files into several small ones? and if yes, how do I put em together in my PC, thanks again for reading.

    "Split&Concat" will do that, but I don't think it does anything to check file integrity when rejoining them.

    You'd be better off getting a USB Stick if the files aren't somehow HUGE. It'll be useful in the future, also.

    I'm not sure I understand. If your PC can't support files larger than a certain size, then how does splitting up the file help you? When you try to recombine it into one large file on the PC you're back to the same problem. What am I missing here?
