my best m8's friend has a compaq laptop and its buggered... he needs to run an app but its about 4 odd MB large..

I know there are some small apps in ms-dos that allow the file to be copied onto 3 floppies in partitions and then copied onto the hdd in safe-mode command prompt...

if anyone has any information or links I would greatly appreciate it :)

thanks...

File Chopper comes to mind ...... not sure where to find it now but I have a copy on one of my older cd's I used it back in the days of win98

thanks... I'll give it a twirl before walking him through it (he's in tampa... I'm in austin @ the moment)

I used to know an app a while back pre A-levels that I used all the time to chop up Mortal Kombat (the original :D )

we got adept @ it and had brilliant .bat files going to keep the thing hidden and what not, but now I can't remember what it was (its been a while)

hopefully this will do the trick :)

thanks for the info..

This thing works good and you can either use file chopper to restore of just create a .bat at the time of chopping and use that to restore... its almost the same as it was a few years back I just installed and looked at it. I remember it working very well.
