Split large folders or files using WinRAR


Here is a tip for people who usually send large files through email, considering the 10 MB limit of attachments. What you can do with your files or folders larger than 10 MB is to split it into archives of 10 MB using WinRAR. Of course, before you try this guide, you need to install WinRAR in your pc. This is not to endorse WinRAR, but I just find the software to be better than the others I’ve used.

Step-by-step Guide

  1. Before you begin, download and install WinRAR first.
  2. Navigate to the folder containing the folder(s)/file(s) you want to send as an attachment.
  3. Right click on the folder(s)/file(s) and then select Add to archive.
  4. You will be given a window where you can rename the archive and most importantly, the option to split the archives into specific files sizes.
  5. Now instead of selecting from the combo box in the Split to volumes, bytes option, type 10485760 or 10000000 to specify that the entire folder(s)/file(s) you have selected be cut into 10 megabytes file size.
  6. When you click Ok, you will see a progress bar and that you will have several WinRAR archives of 10 MB size. You can then attached each of this to an email.
