Computer technology has it that file sizes are getting bigger and bigger. This is usually not a big deal with today's available storage space on hard drives, DVDs, and memory sticks.

Squeezing large files on smaller medias is however still a challenging task.

Imagine you want to send a 700 MB file by email. Impossible? No, not really. Files can always be split up in several smaller bits.

There are may utilities around that can chop large files into convenient pieces. Most of these programs are easy to handle and the majority is even free. One disadvantage of many tools is that the sender as well as the receiver needs the software.

In this article I'm going to show you a way that doesn't require the recipient to install anything on his computer. We will be using Inno Setup, a free installation creator. Admittedly, the sender has to put a little bit more effort in the job, but the result for the receivers can proudly show off.

You will need the Inno Setup package installed on your computer.

Follow the instructions in this article to install Inno Setup's Quickstart Pack.

Install the software, then run ISTool.

ISTool's main window

Its main window looks a bit complicated on first sight but it's actually quite structured. We will only go through the things we really need, and of course, we want to have as little work as possible.
