Extracting .001 files

Most of the archived files that you can download from binary Usenet newsgroups have the following filenames: name.part01.rar, name.part02.rar, name.part03.rar etc. You can extract those files with WinRAR or the free program 7-Zip. But sometimes you will see files with the following filenames: name.001, name.002, name.003 etc, which I will call 001 files.Extracting isn't the right name though: normally these files are not compressed like RAR files, but just split by a file splitter, without compression. Joining would be a better term for what we are about to do.We can do this with three different programs: WinRAR, 7-Zip and HJSplit.

 Joining the files 7-Zip

 Install 7-Zip, right click on the first file (name.001) in the Windows Explorer and choose 'Extract here' in the 7-Zip submenu of the context menu. 7-Zip will extract the archive and place the extract files into the same directory as where the source files are located. You could also choose 'Open archive' to view the archive in 7-Zip or extract the file to another directory by choosing 'Extract files'. Easy!
