What is Z01 file?

Z01 is the first of multiple files that together create a larger file archive created with WinZip tool. The file stores data that when combined with volumes create a complete ZIP archive.

When are split archives used?

Z01 files use the same archivization standard as ZIP files. Spliting a large archive into smaller volumes makes sharing files on the internet easier and allows to overcome size limitations if such are imposed. Splitting is typically used for very large file archives.

Unpacking and archive structure

Z01 extension is used for the first volume of the split archive. Each subsequent volume is given suitable extension name, i.e. Z02, Z03 etc. Process of unpacking the archive can be completed only if all the split volume files are present in the same folder – the program will automatically recreate the original archive from archive parts.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the Z01 file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the Z01 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 Z01 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 Z01 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 Z01 file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
