    How do I do it? I have backed up important stuff on my comp by compiling a .rar archive that’s about 2 gigs, and I’d like to split it up into many .rar’s say 100-200 megs or whatever.

    I’m having trouble uploading via ftp the giant .rar file. It stops around 300 or 400 megs, which wouldn’t be a problem, except my host is RETARDED and for some reason doesn’t allow files to be resumed, it automatically overwrites them and starts over. (this is after one chooses “resume”. I have tried it with 3 separate ftp clients, they all sort of fart around a little bit, then spit out an error message saying “resume prohibited”, and proceed to overwrite the file. wtf)

    Ideas for either problem??

    Highlight the files u wanna put into ur rar, right click, add to RAR.

    Under the general tab, you will see "Split to Volumes". Choose the size of each volume... and hit okay.

    Done.

    yeah I agree. per o2's suggestion, I used winrar to rearchive a big ass rar into many less big ass rar's.

    So they're more like eye-catchingly round-, yet still firm-ass rars?
