HJSplit is a free tool to split and recombine files as large as 100+ gigabytes. The Freebyte program comes with four easy to use features: Split, Join, Compare and Checksum. When splitting a file you can specify how small or large the parts should be. The size ranges from kilobytes (kb) to gigabytes (gb) to fit the individual parts on floppy disks, CD/DVDs, USB Drives and other portable storage, or send them via email or upload to an online webspace. HJSplit Join recombines previously split files to re-create a file of the same size as the original. Compare takes two files and checks if they are equal in length and if bits are in the same position. Finally Cecksum generates a MD5 checksum that can for example be shared with the recipient of your split files to confirm that they have not changed. HJSplit runs without installation from a tiny file. Freebyte also offers a Windows 3.x and MS-DOS version. Thus files can be split and recombined with HJSplit across different operating systems, e.g. Windows XP and MS-DOS.
* Improved: HJSplit is now able to generate MD5 checksums.
* Added: you can cancel an operation by using the new cancel button inside the progress form. When pressing 'Cancel' HJSplit pauses and asks for confirmation.
* Added: the progress display now also explicitly includes the current progress percentage (0% - 100%).
* Added: when you cancel a split operation, the split files that were created during this operation will be deleted. This is to prevent an invalid set of split parts being left on your system.
* Added: when you cancel a join operation, the joined file will be deleted. This is to prevent leaving an invalid joined file on your system.
* Changed: all links pointing to the HJSplit home page (inside the program's main screen and the about screen) have been updated so that they point to www.hjsplit.org (which - at the time of writing this - redirects to the old HJSplit site on Freebyte.com)
