I have been trying to split a 10GB wordlist into 2GB pieces using the command split, the problem is that before the first part is completed the program tells me memory full so I checked the place called root and its only 1.8 GB in size which is obviously not enough the question is how do i change where the files are placed
P.S I boot backtrack from a memory stick,I have a 500GB hard disk and 4GB ram
Another P.S i have tried to see where that root is but i have failed to find out as its not on the hard drive nor on the memory stick and i doubt that its on the ram
thanks in advance
