    Hey folks,

    So I got this very large file that was split into 14 (or 15, not sure) equal sized .rar volumes as xxx.r00, xxx.r01,..., xxx.r14, xxx.rar. The only problem is that almost every other volume was split into two pieces, so when I put them all in the same folder it renames the second one xxx_1.r02, xxx_1.r04, etc. So I now have 21 files with multiples of .r02, .r04, etc. I tried just extracting from the .rar with the duplicates using 7-zip but it comes up with the error "Data error in 'filename'. File is broken". Then I tried renaming the files so that they went from .r00 to .r19, but when I tried to extract from .rar it said "Can not open file 'pathname\xxx.rar' as archive".

    I'm not sure how the volumes were split, but if anyone has any idea on how to combine the parts into one .rar volume I would appreciate the tip!
