Goal: transport files, archives that won't fit in a 1.44 mb diskette from a modern Win10 machine to my 486.
Why: an IDE-CF converter is on its way in the next weeks, so this is just a stopgap measure. No, I don't have a CD Drive on the 486, no I don't have a network card either.
I used to do this back in the day with a 386. There was some utility that could archive directories, including recursively and make them into chunks that fit 1.44 disks. You needed the utility on the target machine to reconstruct it/extract it. The problem here is that I don't remember the name of such a utility (I'm not sure PKZIP can do it, but I'm not certain either) and running it on the modern machine might require running it in an emulated environment.
My questions are:
1) What is the name of the program you use to do this
2) am I forced to use it in dosbox/alternatives
