I’ve written a script to compressed some files and upload to my online cloud storage as a backup daily. Due to memory limitation, i’ve to split the large compressed file into smaller files and upload each of them one at a time. While i’m writing the script, i notice to split the compressed file into smaller files, you need to use another command “split” which i covered many years ago but seldom use it. :p
To split compressed file into smaller files in Linux / Mac, try the following:-
- To tar your files and split into smaller 10Mb files, use the following command:-
$ tar -zcf - files | split -b 10m - ./smaller-files.tgz-part_
You may change the 10m to your desire size.
