The following split criteria are available in Folder Axe to split a folder:

  • Split by amount (Specify the number of files each resulting folder is limited to)
  • Split by size (Specify the size limit of each resulting folder)

To split a folder by specifying the resulting folder size choose the ‘By Size’ tab and enter the size limit for the folder either in KB,MB or GB. Make sure you don’t enter the folder size limit less than the max individual file size. The program is smart enough to alert you the minimum  size that you need to enter.
