by eHow Contributor

HJSplit is a freeware program used to break huge files into smaller sections so they can be easily emailed or stored. With compatible versions available for Windows, Linux, Mac, Java and other file types, you can exchange the files between different operating systems.

Navigate to the HJSplit website and select the software version for your platform. Download the software.


Launch HJSplit. In the "File Join" window, click on the "Input file" button.


Locate the group of files that all have the same file name, except for the extension at the end of the file. The extensions begin with ".001" and continue ".002," "003" and so on. Make sure you have all the files needed to join. If one is missing, you will not be able to complete the process. The files should all be in the same directory.
