Although one of the primary reasons behind creating archives is the ease of handling and transfer, sometimes the compressed file itself is so large that it becomes a nightmare to transfer it over network, especially when the network speed is slow. So, what should be done in cases like these? Is there a solution to this problem? Well, yes – one solution is to split the compressed file into smaller bits, that can easily be transferred over network. At destination, you can join them back to get the original archive.
