I have only listed three ofrepparttar best here. To check out many other possibilities go to: Then click onrepparttar 107813 File Manager link. You will find many other shareware and freeware applications here as well.

In some instances, none ofrepparttar 107814 above programs will be able to help you. Why? Because some HTML Editors do not create separate files. The HTML code and all files associated withrepparttar 107815 page are included in one large file. Even after compressing into an archive file (.zip, .rar, .arc, etc.),repparttar 107816 file is still too large.

This may help in these cases.

File Splitter:

This splits files into pieces so they can be moved onto floppy disks between systems. The program creates a batch file that is easily reassembled on another PC or back on yours. You do not need to have it installed on both machines to transfer files.

You can download File Splitter FREE here:

It is important that you get intorepparttar 107817 habit of backing up your files and websites on a regular basis. Just having things stored on your hard drive is not enough. A computer crash or hard drive failure can wipe out everything. I know this from experience. My hard drive failed and could not be restored. Fortunately I had everything backup on CD's or I would have lost years of important files.

Please, don't make this simple mistake!

Backup everything at least once a week. Daily is better. Atrepparttar 107818 absolute minimum, backup your data files daily.

If all else fails - buy a CD-RW!
