    Yes ... but WinRAR in MS Windows world is able to automatically find all of the other parts of the .ZIP file and extract them -- simply by right-clicking the first file of the series.

    In Ubuntu, I found a java-based file joiner (HJ-Split) which I could use to join all the .znn parts into one file and then unzip that.

    At least in my case, the Archive Manager was unable to extract zip files that consisted of separate files -- like these.
    Ubuntu 17.10 Mate, Mint 18.3 Mate; MS Win10 Pro.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    HJ-Split would just do the same as the cat * > command in this case. An issue I've encountered with this approach is I need to rename whatever.zip to whatever.z00 then do cat whatever.z* > new.zip otherwise the data gets put into the new zip in the wrong order.

    Simple test:
    Code:
    echo "line 1" > test.z00
    echo "line 2" > test.z01
    cat test.z* > archive
    cat archive
    mv test.z00 test.zip
    cat test.z* > archive
    cat archive
    See how line 1 and 2 change place because cat * lists the files alphabetically.

    i had the same problem. a zip archive split in volumes:

    Code:
    myfile.z01
    myfile.z02
    myfile.zip
    the right command to create one zip file:

    Code:
    zip -F myfile.zip --output big_archive.zip
    hope this helps. the resulting archive can now be handled in linux.
