    Fejwin, from PS3News, made this one: OpenSplit

    I used it once, it's easy and working fine.
    It's developed in java so it's multi-plateforms.

    As you need to register to download the files, I uploaded v1.2 to filetrip.
    Find 'OpenSplit' on FileTrip.net

    Currently using updated ver of MultiMAN to back up GT5 to external. It does Auto splitting right? if no *SMH*

    using a backup manager :
    Internal -> External = auto-splitting
    External -> Internal = auto-merging

    but on computer you need to do it manually : full game split version for external HDD.

    When in split form, you can't run the game. you need to put in on Internal first.

    Confused already.

    So GT5 finished getting copied to external via Disk->external. Gia/MultiMan both say I can't launch game in split form (WTF?)

    I'm doing that now, but doesn't that mean I'll have two copies of the same game and having external HDD useless.

    Edit: So I think I'm getting this now. the external HDD is pretty much used as a bridge to transfer into internal?

    The external is a bridge only for games with files >4GB.
    Many games don't have big files, and can be launched from the external without problem.

    If the game folder start with an underscore (or is grey'd out in the manager), then there are split files inside, and you need to put it on internal.
    There's no way, for the moment, to merge the files in real time (on disk access while playing). the files have to be full length before launching the game.

    Easy enough. Thanks Cyan.

    ETA 23min for DS2. Hopefully my DL'd game will post good results like my disk -> backup test run

    edit:

    Used ps3splitter instead of the prog Cyan posted. Split DS2 and was going to install it in internal HDD. But the game runs fine in split mode/external HDD. 0.0

    Using "split4g" -> small and perfect.

    Oh really? Nice to know, never tested it before.
