The file extension 001, 002, and 003 are all part of a split archive, which is a compressed file that is capable of splitting large volume files into smaller ones that are easier to manage. The files are organized into a succession of archives represented by a numeric extension such as 001, 002, and 003.
File extension 001, 002, and 003 are created using a file joiner and splitter program, which provides a way to combine files by splitting them into different parts. This means that the files are part of a succession of files within the Split Archive format such as file.001, file.002, file.003, file.004, file.005 and so on.
In order to open and extract the contents of a Split Archive File, it is necessary to use all parts of the file sequence to extract the contents. In other words, the parts of file extension 003 cannot be extracted without including the 001 and 002 file extensions.
