The PART1.EXE file extension is associated with WinRAR. Its the first part of a multi-volume compressed RAR archive. Its a self-extracting file archive. The extension is actually only exe, the .part(number) is added to the file name of the archive.

Some RAR files can be parts of a multi-volume sequences. In WinRAR you can split a huge archive to a few smaller files, which are called volumes.

Older versions of WinRAR used either:

  • .rar or exe (SFX) for first volume
  • .r01, r02, r03 ....etc. for any additional volumes

Or:

  • .rar or exe (SFX) for first volume
  • .001, .002, .003 ....etc. for any additional volumes

The newer versions of WinRAR are using:

  • .rar or exe (SFX) for first volume
  • .part1.rar, .part2.rar, part3.rar ....etc. for any additional volumes

In order to unpack the multi-volume RAR archive, you need to place ALL of the split parts in the same directory and start extraction of the first volume. The program will automatically use all of the parts to extract the content of the archive.
