    This is sort of a newbie question but figured this would be the best place to ask it.

    I downloaded a fairly big app. Once done, I noticed that there are 15 folders (not what confuses me). Inside each of the 15 folders there are *five* different .7z files to unzip. It asks to unzip "parts 1-15".

    Question, for each folder (which contains five files each, 75 files in all), which file do I unzip? My guess is that you wouldn't unzip all five files. The end result is an .iso that I then will extract. (or maybe 15 iso's)

    I've always wonder about this and usually just pick the last folder and most of the time it's been fine but I think I need to learn what's going on for real before I assume stuff. :D

    7-zip, WinRar, Keka, Unarchiver and other softwares are usually smart enough to extract multi-part archive properly,
    usually you only need to extract the first file (either with 00 or 01 in name, or without number)

    Funny you should ask... Just yesterday I had an old multipart zip package and, oddly, I had to select all the .zip files to extract properly.
    I normally just select the first one. It has been a long time since I had to do more than that. Looking inside each file shows a duplicate of what the whole package contains, though, so it is easy enough to verify.
