segmenting large files
Anybody have any suggestions on segmenting files larger than 2gb under OS 9.0? Nothing seems to recognize files that large yet.

What kind of file is it? Is it a digital video movie?

I don't know, really, but try using Disk Copy or searching for "segment" on CNET's download.com.

I wish you the best of luck...

I got a copy of Compact Pro... has the ability to segment. Little old though. E-mail me if you want.
OS 9 has the ability to recognise files up to 2 terabytes (off the top of my head).

Try MacRAR 2.5. It really gets the job done. Search on versiontracker.com, you'll find it.

I vote for DiskCopy. You can compress your files pretty well at the same time. Download it from Apple's Software Updates area. Here's the link - get the Disk Copy Scripts, too, as they will allow you to segment the image you create. http://asu.info.apple.com/swupdates.nsf/artnum/n11162

Tried all of the above mentioned products, and none of them will segment larger than two gigabytes. Disk Copy can only create an image 2gb big. Ugh-couldn't find anything on the windows side either.

You cannot create files larger than 2gb because HSF+ limits you. This goes for all apps. If you HAVE a file larger than 2gb, something is really wrong.

Actually, that's incorrect. The largest file size under HFS+ is 2 terabytes. See Apple tech note: http://til.info.apple.com/techinfo.nsf/artnum/n24601

ssampey is right - HFS+ handles very large files (2^32*4KB, which may or may not add up to 2 terabytes, I don't care to count it). HFS used to handle nothing larger than 2 GB, though, which is why many programs retain that limit.
