Files that contain the .006 file extension are most commonly associated with split archive files. When a user archives a batch of files into a compressed file archive, the archive file can be split into separate volumes of a smaller file size. This makes it easier to transmit the archive file over the Web or via email.
When an archive file is split by a user, each volume of the archive is given its own file extension in sequence. The .006 file extension is a part of this sequence and is normally assigned to the sixth volume of the split archive file. In order for a user to extract the contents of the archive, all of the volumes must be present.
