Mounting split files

Split files are annoying. Having to merge them by rewriting all the data into a separate file is time consuming and I/O intensive. Would it be possible to either 1) mount split files as a virtual file/drive 2) join them by modifying mft entries, i.e. tack a part to the end the previous file ? To bet...

Uh, the latest beta seems be putting a considerable strain on the system.
I tried loading executables, and Everything choked the hdd with a lot of I/O. When I load/reload page in Chrome, Everything hits %60-70 cpu usage!

I presume this is because it tracks recent file changes/modifications/access?

"Avafind" gathers file size information, and is a great piece of software. It lacks regexp searches and some more features, but it's still good enough.
