I need to split up a large file on windows so I can upload it in parts to a linux machine. I'm looking to do the opposite to this hopefully with some native utilities to keep it simple.

I understand the linux side of the equation to be cat filea fileb > file

what is the simples way to split files on a windows machine which can then be joined together via cat on a linux machine?

or

  • install 7z (free) works for Windows and Linux. Use the -v option (volume) -v100m will split the archive into 100MB files.

7z -v option supports b k m g (bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, gigabytes)

upoad files and extract them from Linux
