What is 002 file?

Files with the 002 extension are generated by various archiving and compression tools. In case of this extension, it concerns an archive comprised of a single or multiple files divided into volumes – the 002 ending refers to the second following volume, which is an element of the whole archive.

In order to extract files archived in a segment marked as 002, all other volumes are required.

Advantages of dividing into volumes

Due to this type of archiving, managing large files is substantially easier, because smaller files can be freely copied onto data carriers or sent via email.

If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the 002 file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the 002 file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the 002 file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the 002 file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the 002 file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
