Opening/Unzipping .zip.001

I have some files:

Gecsoft.zip.001, Gecsoft.zip.002, Gecsoft.zip.003

and I can't open or unzip them using my regular decompression software, what can I do?

  1. Press Windows key + R
  2. Type in cmd
  3. Press enter
  4. I'll assume you are not familiar with comand prompt so I'll make this simpler for you.
  5. Have a look at what the current address is pointing to eg. E:\, whatever that says, type it into a windows explorer window or just go to that address whatever way you know how to.
  6. Go to the folder where the Gecsoft.zip.001 etc. files are and copy them
  7. Paste them into the folder you just opened, in my example E:\
  8. Now back to the command prompt and type in:
  9. copy /b "Gecsoft.zip.001" + "Gecsoft.zip.002" + "Gecsoft.zip.003" "Gecsoft.zip"
  10. Now unzip the new Gecsoft.zip file just created.

  1. If the Zip file doesn't open then it is most likely not a Zip file, this method just joins split files , Apparently so you can rename the .zip file created as .avi or whatever the file should be and it should work :P YAY!
