The 7z.012 file extension is associated with 7-Zip. Its one part of a multi-volume compressed 7-ZIP archive. The extension is actually only 012, the .7z is added to the file name of the archive file to distinguish it as 7z multi-volume compressed file archive.

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.

Note, that 7-ZIP executable archives cannot be made as multi volume archives. The SFX 7-ZIP archive has the common exe file extension.

In order to unpack the multi-volume 7-ZIP archive, you need to place ALL of the split parts in the same directory and start extraction of the first volume (7z.001). The program will automatically use all of the parts to extract the content of the archive.
