Hello,
I have Windows XP on my Mac using BootCamp. I used the NTSF format and wish I had done the FAT32 as I can not share files from my OSX to WINxp. I need to move a 9.5 GB file using a 4GP thumb drive. My question is: is there a program out there, preferable free of course, that can split large files into smaller sizes that can be used in both OSx and WINxp?

Thanks, any help is greatly appreciated.

Found one! Posting it here so as to help others who might be in search of such a program. Called SimplyRAR and I downloaded it from
http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Compres...implyRAR.shtml

UI is simple with not too many options. In fact the only thing I could really get some options out of is the menu bar of icons. Not really all that useful but all-in-all the program .RARs files and I can split them up too.

Thanks all!

FAT32 has a max single file size of <4gb so you wouldn't have been able to move such a big file anyway.

You may wish to consider installing Paragon NTFS(commercial) or MacFUSE and NTFS-3G (free).

That way OSX will be able to read/write your NTFS (XP) partition.

I use split and contact.
http://www.xs4all.nl/~loekjehe/Split&Concat/

And though the site says it isn't so stable on 10.5, I've used it on that system for ages with no issues whatsoever. The only thing is the maximum partition size is 1999MB. But that doesn't matter as you can split up the file into as many parts as you want. So I would recommend this.
