Today I was trying to transfer a file from 1 server to another.  At first I thought the file was too large, so I set out to break up the file.   Credit goes to Techie Corner .   To Split the file: split --bytes=500m /home/photosrandycc.tar.gz /home/bu     To Restore the file: cat bu* > photosrandycc.tar.gz   Turns out the real issue was virtualmin actually set a 1GB quota.
