Files that contain the .016 file extension are most commonly associated with split archive file volumes. When a file compression and archive utility compresses a batch of files into a single archive file, the archive file can be split into separate volumes, allowing for easier distribution of the files over the Web and via email.
Each volume of a split archive file is given its own extension in sequence. The .016 file extension is normally assigned to the sixteenth volume of a split file archive. In order for the contents of the archive to be extracted, all volumes of the archive file must be present.
