What is a 008 file?

Files that contain the .008 file extension are most commonly associated with split archive volume files.

When a file archiving and compression utility is used to take large files or batches of files and compress them into a single file archive, the archive can then be split into separate volumes in order to make it easier to distribute the files and download them from the Internet.

When a file archive is split, each volume of the split archive is given its own file extension in sequence. The .008 file extension is usually assigned to the eight volume of the split file archive.

In order to reassemble the archive and extract of the archive contents, all of the volumes from the split archive must be present.
