Backup Your Data on Slow Network

Steps to achieve:

$ ls
image.jpg
$ split -b 1m image.jpg myfolder/prefix
$ cat moviefolder/prefix1* > output.zip
$ ls
output.zip

Why to Compress? can’t we directly use our files in native format, like, mp4 or jpeg?

This method is not just useful for slow network, but also for the situation when you have much data and you don’t want to keep it on local storage device for privacy/safety purpose.
