Some large sites of ours get .z01 .z02 etc archives.

How can I extract these local if I just want it on my hard drive?

Thank you in advance for letting know.

Part size for split archives

Akeeba Backup supports the creation of Split Archives. In a nutshell, your backup archive is spanned among one or several files, so that each of these files ("part") is not bigger than the value you specify here. This is a useful feature for hosts which impose a maximum file size quota. If you use a value of 0Mb, no archive splitting will take place and Akeeba Backup will produce a single backup archive (default).


If you have a multipart backup archive only the main part with the .jpa, .jps or .zip extension will be displayed. The part files (.j01, .j02, ... or .z01, .z02, ...) will be extracted automatically. In fact, all of these part files MUST be present for the extraction to proceed.
