File Splitter and Merger v2.0 by VollachR

Hi,

As part of my compression tool UCC I have included a Splitter program, it is an old program made by REV0 that no longer works, at least for me.

Which is why I was looking for a tool to replace it in UCC, unfortunately, I couldn't find anything that worked as intended, so I sat down and begun to wright my own splitting script, The result was what you see in this thread...

At first and for a long time it was a simple tool, based in Windows Batch Files but now...

I am proud to present, the Next Generation UCC File Splitter and Merger (UCCFSM):

UCC File Splitter and Merger by VollachR - Version 2.0



Splitter Wiki Page (on UCC Wiki)

ChangeLog


Quote:
Version 2.0
  • Completely Re-Written, No Longer based on Windows Batch Files
  • Brand New GUI
  • New Option to Select an Output folder other than the source folder.
  • More Split Sizes Available to Select From
  • Many script improvements Including better Error Handling and File deletion prevention on errors

Version 1.0.3
  • Bug Fix: There was a typo in the script that caused the splitter to go to the Merging function after it encountered a size error and retry was selected, it is now fixed.
  • Bug Fix: Input of none numeric value in the custom size selection was possible, this is no longer the case, if you input anything but numbers you will now get the bad size error.
  • Bug Fix: From some reason when selecting custom size, if no input was typed before pressing ENTER the size was defaulting to 4000MB, this was not intended, it is now fixed.

Version 1.0.2
  • Executable now runs as administrator to prevent access denied to certain folder locations
  • When splitting file no longer automatically deletes the original file, instead it ask if you want to delete the original file immediately after selecting the size & only deletes it if answered YES.

Version 1.0.1
  • Bug Fix: Updated version of splitter command (now it won't change the windows title anymore)

Version 1.0.0
  • Initial Release

So, if you're like me and both the Splitter.exe by REV0 and the one by BAMSE won't do anything at all when selecting the file to split than you're in the right place, I'm proud to present a new Splitter that make use of a better splitting software that is not limited to 2GB (like BAMSE's was), furthermore it uses a simple command that exist in every WINDOWS OS to perform the merge operation which makes it highly compatible.

The result files of the splitting process with my new Splitter have the file extension Part###, meaning Part001, Part002, etc. (or Part## before version 2.0)

I've tested UCC File Splitter and Merger extensively, at least to the best possible by one person.

The Splitter output is completely compatible with ALL version of CIUv2 using Records.ini.

Enjoy.

Nice man, really good idea to use free fsplit by dubasdey and use copy command to merge, but I think it was good to credit the original file splitter creator.

Good work mate.

Thanks...

But didn't I mention credit in the Readme file I attached in the RAR archive? I know I meant to, must have forgotten to type it in, I'll fix that.

EDIT: Fixed!! Re-uploaded the archive with the updated Readme file as well as the Standalone Readme file.

I Uploaded a new version of my splitter script, it now uses a newer, better version of the Fsplit software by dubasdey, it also no longer changes the window title while splitting, which was the only thing that annoyed me and I couldn't solve before, the new fsplit version solved it.

enjoy.

Good news, according to KaKtoR it seems CIUv2 already works with my new splitter, it just requires the use of Records.ini.

Here's how to use Records.ini in case you don't know:

Types: Split, Freearc_Split, Freearc_Original
Split: Splitted archive part
Freearc_Split: Indicator for merging
Freearc_Original: Original archive, without split/merge function.

Code:
[Record1]
Type=Split
Source={src}\Data1_1(3).bin
Output={app}\Data1.bin
Disk=1
[Record2]
Type=Split
Source={src}\Data1_2(3).bin
Output={app}\Data1.bin
Disk=2
[Record3]
Type=Split
Source={src}\Data1_3(3).bin
Output={app}\Data1.bin
Disk=3
[Record4]
Type=Freearc_Split
Source={app}\Data1.bin
Output={app}
Disk=3
[Record5]
Type=Freearc_Original
Source={src}\Data2.bin
Output={app}
Disk=3
So basically, if I got it correctly, to have CIUv2 merge the files at the end of setup you need to have records.ini set-up and using the Freearc_Split type to tell the CIUv2 which archive includes the split files, it should be able to handle it.

Please let me know if it really works or if there's any problems.

What for?

Beside, it's a batch script, I don't know of a way to make a GUI for a batch script.

So, no, most likely not possible.

I added a link to the OP that takes to the wiki article of the File Splitter and Merger on the Ultimate Conversion Compressor WiKi, just letting you know so you won't miss it.

It's right above the changelog.

A new version of the File Splitter and Merger is in development, the new version will no longer be based on a batch file and will be written in a better scripting language. It will also have a brand new GUI.

I'll post previews of File Splitter and Merger v2.0 as soon as I can, development is nearly complete.

Have a nice day
