operating question: if you cancel a split file command in progress...

    My setup:
    7-Zip 9.20, 32-bit
    Windows XP, 32-bit
    Intel Core 2 duo
    3 Gb RAM

    I compressed a set of files into an 11 Gb file that took about 90 minutes. Then I started a split file command based on 4 Gb, then cancelled 5-10 minutes later. It left the first part. Would the original file still be intact, or would some of it have been moved to the first part?

    When I attempt to combine files, it reports it can't find all the parts. I would like the peace of mind to have you tell me my original file has not lost any data.

    The "Split" command doesn't change original file.
