How do I extract the archives



  • I have downloaded a group of files that are numbered *.001 thru *.083. These numbers are in the place where extenions usually are. The instructions are as follows: " Just extract the archives and burn/mount with your favorite software "

    I have no idea what to to with these files in order to get the *.exe and other files necessary to install this program.

    What program do I need to “Extract these files”?

    Thanks

    What happens when you open .001 file with PowerArchiver?



  • Nothing happens.
    I have just downloaded power Archiver 6.11 and i don’t understand it.

    Can you give me a simple A.B.C. recipe of how I can get thru these files to something I can use?

    Thanks alot



  • I do not think PA 6 can handle those files. Have you tried the latest version of PA?

    That usually indicates a split/spanned archive - I’m guessing that these are all the same filesize (except for the .001 and/or .083 files? Usualy there would be one more with an extension indicating the actual compression format - 7z, rar etc

    Again there should be a clue to the archive type - can you provide the source site?

    Sounds like after extraction you will have an iso file to burn to CD/DVD or similar. Then the utility (?) would installed from that.

    Split files could be ACE, RAR, 7Z, Zip (depending on the version used.

    Note: PA 6.11 was the last “free” version from 2001. So it will not support “large” archives (>2GB) or the newer compression formats.



  • Many thanks for your interest in my problem.

    I installed Power Archiver 2007 and I got an “extract here” command when I right clicked my mouse. Your were right…it turned out to be a huge *.iso file. 4.3 GB.

    Now I have a new problem. My Nero 7.0 Ultra Edition says that it can’t handle an *.iso file greater the 2 GB and says I should “use a UDF file system”. What is a “UDF file system”

    I don’t know what to do next?

    Should I take this problem to a Nero forum?

    Thanks again



  • Depending on your needs, can’t you open the iso file in PowerArchiver as well?


  • conexware

    You need to use latest version of Nero which probably supports UDF ISO’s. It is basically newer version of ISO format which has support for files greater than 2 GB and unicode filenames.

    thanks,



  • Or download imgburn and burn it with that.



  • Power Archiver plus ImgBurn worked.

    Thanks to everybody that helped.
