is an application that you can use to join and split files, as well as compare them by their MD5 checksum. It features a few advanced options that can be easily handled.
The installer comes packed with several third-party applications that are marked for setup by default. However, if you don’t rush through the wizard steps and carefully read the information next to the checkboxes, you can decline all offers to make a clean installation. Other than that, it needs
As far as the interface is concerned, the program adopts a user-friendly window split into three main parts for splitting, joining and comparing files.
After indicating a file and output folder, you can instruct Split Byte to split it into any number of equally sized parts, or by size in bytes, kilobytes, megabytes or gigabytes.
It’s possible to set the output file name pattern, encrypt data, compress the file into a ZIP before splitting it, keep the timestamps, as well as delete the source files, open the new files’ location in your file explorer, or turn off the computer on task completion.
When it comes to putting the pieces back together, all you have to do is point out the first volume, since the utility will automatically identify the rest, as long as they are all in the same directory. You can establish the output folder and file name, specify the exact split parts, keep the timestamps, as well as perform the same post-task actions as mentioned above.
Two files can be compared by their MD5 unique hashes to find out if they are identical or not, regardless of their name, size or timestamps. The program autodetects the checksums and lets you copy them to the Clipboard.
It carried out tasks swiftly in our tests while remaining light on system resources consumption. No error dialogs popped up and it didn’t hang or crash.
To sum it up, Split Byte facilitates a simple environment and approachable options for cutting, merging and comparing files, and it can be seamlessly used by anyone.
