I know about all the file splitting programs which split the files into equal parts.

But i need to split a file say 783kb into 2 parts

Part1 : 105kb Part2 : 680kb

is there a program to do this ? in Windows XP


  • For which operating system?

1 Answer 1


You could split the file into parts of 105kB, for example using split from GNU CoreUtils for Windows, and then assemble all but the first part.

Or you could, from the same package, use head to output only the first xxx Bytes from a file to another file called myFileHead:

head -c xxx myFile > myFileHead

The same applies to tail, only writing the last xxx Bytes to a file called myFileTail:

tail -c xxx myFile > myFileTail
  • Actually, I need to split a 1400mb file into Part1:115kb Part2:theremainingfile.. so this method will be consuming huge time if used..

  • I doubt it, that's merely a one-liner in Bash.
