How do you recombine files named Part##0 Part##1 etc. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I've been driving myself crazy trying to figure out how to re-combine files from a onecare backup. I had purchased onecare for a year, did a backup and after the year uninstalled and cancelled cause I was getting a new PC.

    Anyway, I was trying to get one of my files back from the archive and its split into 5 parts. I saved the 5 parts, but that is all. I have no other onecare files on the drive or anywhere else for that matter. Just those 5 pieces.

    The names are:
    Part##0 of filename - 48 megs
    Part##1 of filename - 49 megs
    Part##2 of filename - 51 megs
    Part##3 of filename - 48 megs
    Part##4 of filename - 6 megs

    How do I get them back together again? It is driving me crazy! I have tried every compress/decompress merge/split program I can think of, and none of them work. It is an ISO file from a video I made of my family.

    Can someone help me with this please?! I should also note that I can unzip with a zip utility Part##0 and it works. It creates the audio/video ts files. Then I can even play the file, but it stops half way through. how do I get them all back together?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you very much,
    TJ

  • You need Windows OneCare installed to restore the backup. Install a trial version to perform the restore if you wish and remove it after the restore has completed.

    Alternatively, I believe that you may be able to use a 3rd party utility to rejoin the files after extracting the parts from the zip files. One freeware utility for this is here - http://www.freebyte.com/hjsplit/
