WinRAR | A Handy File Splitter

I am not sure if this problem is with everyone but somehow all my attachments which are bigger than 10 MB or so fail to get attached in Gmail. It’s pretty annoying knowing that maximum limit of attachment is 25 MB still I am not able to attach smaller files.

I know yahoo mail has got better support for big file attachment but who wants to leave the Gmail and switch to cluttered Yahoo!? This frustration led me to search for alternate ways to send that PDF which my friend was waiting for.

A quick Google for of the term “file splitter” gave me an overwhelming   1,440,000 results!!  I decided to check out this result .First search result lead to, offering a nice little free tool of just 627 kb size. This tool does the job just the way one expects splitting the files and joins the parts back together. It gives you the freedom to set your own size of the chunk.
