splitting a large Acronis image file & join back later in Windows/MSDOS (equivalent of Unix split)
Posted on 2008-10-29
I've created a number of large Acronis image backup files (.tib) & this is
filling up our NAS disk space.
I'll need to burn it into DVD to housekeep the large .tib files.
BTW, there's on 4Gb Acronis .tib file which will always give me
error when I burn to a DVD-R using Nero (spoilt 3 pcs of DVD-R)
but when I used a DVD+R with Sonic, it could burn Ok
What tool can I used to split them, burn them as "Data DVD" &
when needed, join them back & Acronis should be able to
use the joined file for restoration.
In Unix, "split" is used that could specify size of the output
file & then "cat xxx >> yyy" to join the split files back
