How to uncompress this winrar file?


    I have several files with the names file.rar.001, file.rar..002 and file.rar.003

    How do I uncompress them? I have tried adding .rar to the end, that didn't work, I tried changing to file001.rar etc but that didn't work

    Any ideas?



    Just open the first file (.001), with your compression software (WinRAR in this case), and extract like you normally would.

    Hjsplit for basic joining or just install 7Zip for a good all in one archiver.

    hjsplit should open 001 files

    The files need to be joined first before they can be opened (looks like its in 3 parts), i recommend the FFSJ software too.


    Need to be joined then extracted. all the info is above
