Backup large video file

Is there a way to break up large video file and back them up to 4GB DVD?
Also put them back together after the restore. Thanks for any help.

Hey Carl,

Just an FYI, you would probably have better luck posting this in an editing thread. Yes, there are ways that it can be done, but it really depends on what OS you work on. I suggest asking this question in either the mac or the windows editing threads.

Winzip can do this, you specify the max file size you want and it will split it into a multipart archive whose parts do not exceed the max size.

Carl,

I would advise you to use any free file splitters like that only splits file rather than compresses and splits it as winzip or winrar does it, which takes forver and you don't get almost any benefit (the file size of a packed film clip is relatively the same as uncompressed).

The one I use is: http://www.dekabyte.com/filesplitter/download.html
It's free, and it even creates an executable file which merges the split files for you automatically so no need to run the very program. Hever tried it on the video files though.....

Hope this helps
