File extension .Z01
Z01 (.Z01) files are used by WinZip, a data compression program used to reduce the size of a file or group of files for transportation and/or storage. These files are known as ‘Split Zip Files’ and are part of the WinZip distribution package; they are used to segment user-compressed files into multiple sections of a predetermined size.
Characteristics and Usage
These files are mainly used when users want to break down one file into multiple smaller ones in order to store in one compact unit while minimizing the risk of having a corrupt file due to transmission error or external issues. The second or last parts of these split Zip files have an ‘.zip’ extension instead of a ‘.z01’, however when recombined into a single file, all segments have the same WinZip format.
Other similarly used file formats that can be created with WinZip include: (.001), (.002), (.003), and (.r00).
The .Z01 extension is sometimes also referred to as a ‘Secure Zip Attachment’ format, which is capable of safeguarding confidential information through secure messaging.

After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .Z01) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .Z01 extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .Z01 file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .Z01 extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .Z01 extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .Z01 file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .Z01 file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .Z01 file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .Z01 file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .Z01 file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
