What is a 007 file?
Files that contain the .007 file extension hold a single volume of a split file archive. When a file compression and archiving utility takes a large file or a batch of files and compresses the data into an archive folder, that folder can be split into separate volumes to allow for easier distribution of the information over the Web.
The volumes of a split archive file are each given their own extension in sequence. For example, the first volume of the split archive would normally have the .001 extension, the second the .002 extension, etc.
Files with the .007 extension usually contain the seventh volume of a split file archive. In order to extract the files from the file archive all of the volumes must be present.
