How to Join Dell ISO Files

Apparently a few years back, Dell started splitting large ISO files into smaller pieces to make downloading easier. The page I was downloading from said they needed to be joined, but did not provide the instructions.

Here are the instructions for joining two DVD files (OM_6.5.0_SMTD_A01.iso.001 and OM_6.5.0_SMTD_A01.iso.002):
  1. Place the files to be joined in a separate folder.
  2. Open a command prompt and change to the folder containing the files.
  3. At the command prompt, type copy /b om* OM_650_SMTD_A01.iso and press Enter.
This copies the two existing files into a single new file. Based on the file names, they should be selected in the correct order. However, if they are not, you can use this modified command that specifies the order:
copy /b OM_6.5.0_SMTD_A01.iso.001+OM_6.5.0_SMTD_A01.iso.002 OM_650_SMTD_A01.iso
