Reduce files size on Hero 7 settings

[ New ]
I’m shooting videos that last 60-90 mins. I’m shooting on the lowest res and frame speed but the files are 4GB. I know I can compress them afterwards but what I’d like to do is change settings so instead of 1 file that’s 4G change settings so I get 4 files of 1GB each. So is there something where I can change a setting to set my max file size and reduce it from 4 to 1?? Thanks. David.

No, there's only so much your GoPro can compress the files.  Your only other option would be shoot in test segments and figure out how long you can shoot in order to achieve a 1GB file size and then shoot in segments.
