I have a directory containing several large files that are each greater than 4gb. I want to copy all of those files to a different directory (happens to be a fat32 usb drive mounted), but split the files down to 4gb (since the destination drive is limited to that size files).
I tried this:
split -b 4096G /var/lib/backuppc/images/* /usbdrive/
but I get a
split: extra operand `/var/lib/backuppc/images/xxxxxxxxxmyfilesname.tib'
Am I doing something wrong? (also tried "4G" instead of 4096G, no difference)
