Split directories will allow a directory tree to be split into sections suitable for burining to DVDs. This function can be used when it is necessary to transfer many files to DVDs and will try and fill DVDs to approx 90-95% capacity.
It is possible to recover files into DVD sized directories when doing recovery, but this can often mean that directories are scattered over several DVDs. This occurs when certain recovery modes are use, such as NTFS Recover from file entries. In order to produce DVDs with a more logical directory structure, files should be recovered without the DVD option, and then this split tool can be run.
To run the function, it is just necessary to enter the name of the main directory storing the files to be placed into DVD directories. The output files will be moved into new directories on the same drive, in a directory with a 0 added to the original directory name. Thus is the initial directiory is "SplitDVD" the output directory will be "SplitDVD0". As the files are moved, the original file will disappear, and so files can be split on a full drive, very little extra space is required.
