"otherwise, compress hundred files, then try to split into 2 GB pieces."

I'm not sure I follow your advice here, if the OP is complaining that, for what ever reason, they can't write files > 2GB, how are they going to do this?

    If I understood targetsmart right, he didn't mean "create an archive of all the files and then split into 2GB chunks", but "compress the files, then partition them into sufficiently small sets, then create the archives".
