7-ZIP is the native format of 7-Zip archiver. Like other archives, 7-ZIP files are data containers, which store one or several files in a compressed form. Compressed archives are common on internet, especially on sharing or torrent sites.
7-Zip does use the following sequence:
- .7z.001 for first volume
- .7z.002, 7z.003, 7z.004 ....etc. for any additional volumes
Note, that 7-ZIP executable archives cannot be made as multi volume archives. The SFX 7-ZIP archive has the common EXE file extension.
