    started using torrents to d/load stuff,some of the items have like 52 files,question being do you just string them together using whatever program necessary,why are they split like this,when on p2p progs like shareza you are only d/loading 1 file

    Compression Files

    .rar .zip .ace .r01 .001

    These extensions are quite common and mean that your file(s) are compressed into an "archive". This is just a way of making the files more compact and easier to download.

    To open any of those archives listed above you can use WinRAR (Make sure you have the latest version) or PowerArchiver.
    If those programs aren't working for you and you have a .zip file you can try WinZip, or 7-zip.

    .cbr .cbz

    These are usually comic books in an archive format. a .cbr file is actually the same thing as a .rar file and a .cbz file is the same as a .zip file. However, often when opening them with WinRAR or WinZip it will disorder your pages. To display these archives properly it's often best to use CDisplay.

    The reason files are split like that is because there is less chance for corruption
