KFK File Splitter

by James 14 February 2009 3 Comments

Overview
KFK is an easy to use freeware file splitter that lets you split your large files into smaller chunks and then rejoin the pieces without needing the program.

Review
While browsing the web in search for a file splitter I remembered that I saw one at KC Softwares, the makers of SuMo. Now I’m not using SuMo anymore, but maybe KFK will be good enough to keep. The first thing that I noticed is that KFK is very easy to use, I guess even my mother could handle it. Just choose the file that you want to split, the output destination, the size of the chunks and that’s about it.

I also chose to generate the automatic rebuild file, because I want to be able to rebuild my file even if I send the pieces on a computer that doesn’t have KFK installed.

I chose to split the Freeware Mission Megapack, 636 MB. The splitting process didn’t take very long, under a minute, and the result were, as I instructed the program, 6 files with a maximum size of 99 MB each.

There also is the MS-DOS batch file that allows you to rebuild the original file without having to use KFK again.

The rebuild process took ages to complete though, about five minutes, but the output was OK, the original file in one piece. Obviously you can choose to rebuild the file with KFK, much faster, but if I send the files to somebody else I want him to be able to rebuild it without installing KFK.

Summary

Easy to use.

 Can rebuild the splitted files without the program.

 Rebuilding the file with the MS-DOS batch file took a long time to complete.

Verdict

KFK is not one of those freeware programs that can make me addicted or enthusiastic but overall it’s a reliable program that does the job it was designed for: it splits and rebuilds your files, nothing more, nothing less.

    Hi Johnny, I’m a real fan of your site. Great work! Based on your review I now use Glary Utilities. It also has a file splitter. I like to run my pc on freeware, but also to keep it as simple as possible. Do you think KFK File Splitter is better for this job? Keep up your great work! Marco (Holland)

    Hey Marco, thanks for the comment. I guess that KFK is good for those who don’t use Glary, I wanted to find a specialized program just for that. Otherwise I think that the file splitter module in Glary Utilities is quite similar to KFK, maybe with a few minor differences. If you like Glary Utilities just stick to that one I’d say. Cheers.
