Consider a large amount of data an some USB-Flash-Drives with differring remaining space.

I'd like to have a splitting option "fill available space on multiple (removable) media". Then, the UI first asks for a Drive/Path, then it fills that path with data. Afterwards - for the next part of the split archive, it asks again for a new Drive/Path. In the meantime, I would change the removable media.

    Not only that, but just say explicitly what size every part will be. Strange that it's not present – but equal size option is. (i thought free size is never consistent between medias)

    Also the standard Floppy size wasn't much useful because diskettes often produce many mistakes-errors if filled to the full. There should be an option to fill some 1.2 MB for 1.44. Or edittable (maybe they are?).
