Split&Concat... In Internet newsgroups large files often are split into smaller parts since messages can not be of more than a certain size to be able to post them in newsgroups.

For that reason you can find often binary files that are split in parts like filename.mp3.001, filename.mp3.002, filename.mp3.003 etcetera. It is possible to put these parts together using commands in the Terminal yet not everybody is handy with that. That is why I decided to create a small utility with the OS X interface that makes it easy for people to split large files to be uploaded, or to put

Brilliant app. Been using it for years alongside MacPAR deLuxe. Works great but the app icon could seriously use a refresh (please).

While I've only used it twice, both times offered flawless rejoined archives - while other applications were unable to handle the files.

Today I split a .dmg of 6.7 GB into 4 pieces and, to test it, I concated it back into 1 piece and proofed it: Worked flawlessly on my G4 with OSX.5.8 ... and I used Split&Concat 2.5! Now I saw that 3.0 is out, so I download it.^^

You need this as well.. but very few files actually are distributed in this format anymore.

This works fine, not sure what all the complaints are about. Mind you, I've only used it for concatenating files, not splitting them. But it's pretty stupid simple to use, just drag the .001 file on top of it and away it goes.

If your files aren't concatenating correctly, it's probably because the files are corrupt, not an issue with this app.

Thx for the work, dev, and for making this free.

GARBAGE.

like someone else said..this POS doesnt work. why in living lords name would ANYONE use this to break apart files instead of just using a rar splitter?

i came a cross a very valuable file(not in dollars) to me, and lo and behold, i saw something like use plit and congrats...whatever...and guess what happened...nothing.

I just had to tell u folks why i was mad..oh, and avoid this like the plague.

To me, an absolutely useless piece of software. Let me tell you what my experience is.
Starting the app, clicking on Concat, indicating one of the two files (filename.sitx.001 and .filename.sitx.002), split by someone else, with the same tool. Indicating output folder, clicking on Choose...
The result:
'You are trying to do something strange, like splitting a folder or disk. Place a folder or disk on a disk image first!'
What? :) And this work receives 3.5 stars? What for?
Anyway, it may work for someone else, but the way it is explained in the help file, does not.
Does not do the job, useless.

I find that it doesn't work with Snow Leopard as well which is weird because this is supposedly a Snow Leopard release. I thought the files were bad at first, but then I concatenated them in Terminal and that worked perfectly. Hope there's a fix soon.

Ah okay. I've figured why it doesn't work. It will not overwrite if you have a file of the same name in the same folder (unless you've registered?). Also, drag only ONE file to concat. What messed me up was that I dragged all the segments. Works great after I stopped being an idiot.

Does anyone know of an alternative to this program? As mentioned before it does not work on leopard, it simply combines the first file with itself in a weird format, so it doesn't really seem to do anything.
I know it's free so I'm not going to give it a negative review, since it looks like the original developer has abandoned the project (last update August 2006). Just wondering if there's an alternative for those of us that were unlucky enough to end up with one of these sets of split files.
I've tried Machacha also, but it doesn't combine Split&concat files.

I'm attempting to use this app to join 38 files into a single dmg file. It concats the 1st file OK (albeit slow...). When I choose the 2nd file to concat, I get an overwrite warning. It just wants to overwrite rather than join the files.

I've also selected all 38 files and dragged onto the icon and selected concat: each successive file overwrites the next.

I've troubleshooted the obvious: There is nothing wrong with file names. aap.dmg.001, aap.dmg.002, etc

Appreciate any suggestions to make this work or a suitable alternative app.

Of course, you can also use this program to split or recombine files that are too large e.g. to be put on one CD.
