'gfslicer' slices and then deslices large files, mainly for use with removable storage media. Files can be sliced to any arbitrary size and then transferred using floppies, etc. The sliced files can then be desliced to the original form with the same name and extension. A checking mechanism helps avoid errors. You can tar folders and then slice them within gfslicer and the same in reverse (i.e., deslice and untar not slice and tar). Tar and untar can be used separately. A log file facility is also included to cross-check what happened already. You can also can drag and drop any file into gfs window and get it sliced.
