How to Extract 7Z.001 Files

By Greyson Ferguson

7Z.001 is a compressed file format used to shrink the size of any data file. This allows it to be sent over the Internet or via email mush easier than if the file stayed in its original format. Once you obtain a 7Z.001 file on your computer you need to extract its contents before having access to the file. Thankfully, your computer (both Windows and Mac) have the ability to extract the file, without actually downloading any additional programs to the hard drive.

Step 1

Navigate to the location on the computer where the 7Z.001 file is located.

Step 2

Right-click the file and choose either "Extract" or "UnZip." If you are using a Mac computer the file is extracted immediately (and you are done). If using a Windows computer, proceed to the next step.

Step 3

Wait for the zip extraction software to appear on the screen. Choose a location to save the extracted file to (this option is at the bottom of the software screen).

Step 4

Click "Extract" (or "Unzip") and the contents of the 7Z.001 file are extracted to the desired save location.
