I doubt thats possible.
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
Ok i see "Split to volumes, Bytes" but i dont really know what to do from there... i selected the compression i want (CD700Mb) but nothing really happens...

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