How to split a big tar files?

Easy 😉
split -b 100000000 thisfile.tar.gz thisfile.tar.gz

This will split your file into 100 MB parts with the thisfile name and suffix of gzaa, gzab, gzac, etc…

Then how to join them?

Easy too 😉
cat thisfile.tar.gz?? > thisfile.tar.gz

Until next time 🙂

I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.
