The 002 file extension is associated with several compression tools, which are using, or did use in the past, the 002 file extension for its multi-volume archive files, such as Winrar (see part2.rar) or 7-Zip (see 7z.002).

The general file sequence is 001, 002, 003, etc.. and you will need all parts of the multi-volume archive to successfully extract the content.

In some cases, the 002 file extension doesn't mean the second part of the multi-volume archive, but the second part of the divided file.
The first thing you have to do is to merge split files (001, 002, 003 etc.) into one file (usually split archive) via split tools. Afterwards you can use a compression utility to extract data from the archive.
