I would like a program that takes say a really large file, maybe even up to a gig and breaks it into smaller managable files like 5MB or whatever for transport/ upload and then someone else can download them. Know what I mean? Then a person can download pieces and not have to download a huge file. Is there something like this? Thanks.

With WinRAR, you would need a copy of WinRAR to reassemble them (or any of many other archivers that can open RAR archives).

With ChainSaw a small batch file is produced and all you need to do to reassemble the parts is run the file so no one needs any additional software.

I usually include a trial version of WinRar along with the file sent! But most of the people I send files too have Winrar already loaded!! We all use it quite a bit!!

could simply be a very large text document, such as a thesis(with loads of images *nods and realizes thats such a weak attempt to make it sound better*), with the users email account only allowing 1 meg attachments ;)

I suppose I might be willing to buy that, but since another thread was closed yesterday with a P2P question.....I'm willing to bet some swamp land on it ;)
