What is a Z01 file?

The first of multiple files that make up a split archive created with WinZip; uses the same compression as a standard .ZIP file, but must be decompressed along with the related split archives (.Z02, .Z03, etc.).

More Information

Split archives are often used to shrink the size of large files for e-mail attachments or file downloads. They can only be decompressed if all the split archive segments are available.
