AccuSplit v4.6 is a multi-threaded Win32 application that is designed to rapidly and reliably split large files and computer videos into smaller segments to allow for easy archival to external media like DVD, CD-R, Zip or floppy disks. These file segments can then be recombined at a
later time into an exact copy of the original file. The application was initially developed to split very large video files into smaller segments so that they could be moved from the hard drive onto inexpensive CD-R disks, thereby freeing up significant hard disk
space. However the application is capable of segmenting and then correctly reconstructing ANY file, even non-Windows format files.
To insure that the file reconstructed from the file segments exactly matches the original source file the application incorporates an advanced cryptographic algorithm that computes an MD5 Message Digest for both the original and reconstructed files. An MD5 Message Digest match
between these files indicates with absolute certainty that no data was lost during the file split and reconstruction process. Additionally, if absolute data integrity as well as foolproof error-correction capabilities are desired AccuSplit also includes the capability to
create RAID-formatted file segments. In this mode the software creates file segments that are embedded with a very powerful RAID-style error correction mechanism that allows it to correct for data errors on damaged media. Errors ranging from a single corrupted data byte on a
scratched CD to an entirely missing file segment are fully correctable with this option.
AccuSplit also includes a special Video Smart Split mode that can split AVI (including DIVX / XVID / INDEO / DV-AVI), WMV, WMV-HD (720p, 1080i, 1080p), DVR-MS, and MPEG-1 format files (including Video-CD) into "independently playable" segments without a lengthy video re-rendering process. Now you can split your large video files into CD-sized (or any other size) segments and play them back directly from the CD - no file reconstruction is required. The software also includes a Video Preview option that allows the user to manually adjust the location of the file split points - avoiding splits in the middle of an important scene.
AccuSplit has been designed to run as a stand-alone executable. There is nothing to install. Simply extract the application and its help files from the downloaded Zip file and double-click on the AccuSplit.EXE file to begin program execution. The application runs under
Windows [95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Server2003/Vista] and doesn't include any of the annoying AdWare or NagWare plug-ins that are common to many of today's shareware applications. AccuSplit also includes a full user help file.
