    .rar volumes are a compressed file format, like a Zip file. Have you tried to rename it and remove the '.001' from the rar.001? If it's .rar (Extract with winRAR) If it has .r00 & .rar (Right click .r00 & extract with winRAR).

    Rar files are compressed archives. These files are part of a split rar archive. If you want to open Rar files on a Windows PC you need to use BitZipper 2009.2 .r03 files. These files are part of a split rar archive. Much like a zip file, a rar file is a compressed version of what you downloaded. It can open Rar files, Zip files and just about any other compressed or encoded file format you are ever likely to come across in the future.

    To extract rar.001 Simply right click the first volume and choose extract here (all the parts must be in the same folder). If that doesn't work then you need to use 7-Zip. Ii is a High compression ratio in new 7z format with LZMA compression. It is Open source Windows utility for manipulating archives. Formats 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR are supported fully, other formats can be unpacked.

    Rar files are the most common multi-part file type. To extract rar.001 you need to download WinRar. 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.
