What are mult-part archives

Multi-part archives are, typically, .7z, .rar, .zip files spanned on multiple volumes, each volume containing part of the data split in order to be conatined in a size below the desired maximum size.
This spanning process allows the archive to:
  • be sent through channels enforcing a maximum payload size, e.g. maximum attachment size for some email providers, or maximum allowed file size for upload or cloud services
  • be saved on filesystems where maximum file size limitations are still relevant, i.e. FAT filesystems
PeaZip supports both creating spanned multipart archives, and opening and extracting multipart archives from different archive manager utilities in multiple formats.
The first volume, the one named with the lowest progressive number (usuallay starting from 1, seldom from 0) it is the part that needs to be opened or extracted in order to access the full content of the archive.
Most commonly multivolume archives are found with .001 extension (usually 7Z or ZIP files spannd by 7-Zip, PeaZip and similar apps), .part01.rar or .r01 (usually multi part RAR files created by WinRar), or .z01 (usually multi part ZIP or ZIPX archives created by WinZip).

How to open multi-part archives

From the system file explorer, or from PeaZip file manager double click (or right click > Open as archive) the first volume of the multi part archive.
In order to be able to list the entire archive content it is recommended to save all the parts of the spanned archive in the same folder.
The first volume of the archive is the one with the lowest progressive number, and it can be usually identified as .001, .r01, .z01, or .part01.rar, and other parts should show the same filename and extension type with progressively increasing numbering.
Once all archive parts are in the same directory, open the first part with PeaZip to be able to browse, search, list, test or extract the entire multi-part archive.
