    It is, its called spanned archives. You can break files into multiple RAR archives and then decompress them as if they were just one archive. I don't use WinRar so I can't give detailed instructions though on how to do it. I use PowerArchiver.

    There should be some sort of option like "max file size" when creating the archive, and thats what you want to set. Then it will automatically parse to a new file when that cap is hit.

    I use 7-Zip though.

    Open WinRar, navigate to the folder with that rar, select it, tools, convert archives, compression

    Select it, press ok on that screen, and ok on the next. It should split it.

    Yeah, this is the way to do it, if you have the time, recompress with this selection from the start.
