It's to avoid losing all your video in case of a problem with a file.

GoPro does the same

I use VSDC.
It's quite easy to use and has many great editing features, but there must be plenty more basic programmes if you just want to do simple operations.
I think there is one already in Windows.
Handbrake is good for compressing videos.

Happy editing!

Actually how big are the 4-5min files? File format system is limited to 4gb per file so that is why they are broken up. 4k files get big fast. change res to 1080p and you can record much longer files. try it to verify.

Nothing to do with losing files....

When you edit your videos ..you'll find that the more cuts the better, but if your worried that you may have missed something..don't. You haven't missed a thing the files go together seamlessly.
