To keep them manageable we often break them into segments of 2 gb or less:

You really rely on the shell globbing expansion to set the proper order of
the pieces?

It's a documented / well defined ordering. The pieces are named such that
they fit glob expansion ordering rules. image.001, image.002, ...,

So yes.

fyi: I do manually review all the pieces to make sure there are not any
extraneous files that might get picked up.
