How to compress a file into multiple splitted files (Like what you used to do in MS Windows using Winrar)

I made it through the GUI this time, not using the command line:
  • Opened Gnome File Roller (Applications ->Accessories->Archive Manager)
  • Dragged the folder I wanted to compress inside it
  • Click "Create Archive"
  • Click "Other Options"
  • Tick "Split in volumes of" and choose the split size (how many MB you want each file split to be)
  • Choose "Archive Type" to be "7z". Note: I selected "Automatic" at first, but it didn't work! Do you know why??
  • Click "Create"
  • Enjoy :)
