I have a large file that I want to send via email. To get round size limits I can use 7-zip to create a multiple file zip archive and then send the files one per email. Putting this back together with 7-zip is trivial. Unfortunately the recipient has only standard Windows 7 tools available and is not permitted to install other software. Any idea how they can reconstruct and unzip the file please?

Thanks, Dave.

Okay I have an ugly answer using the cmd prompt, but the target users are really not that techie: copy /b – Dave Potts Oct 17 '13 at 11:13
Good, please enter the answer once the timeout for answering yourself expires. Probably you can make it better for non-"techies" by creating a .bat or .cmd script. – pabouk Oct 17 '13 at 11:18
