Hello and welcome to the forums, andrew113,

Have you enabled proper viewing of file extensions in Windows 7?

File Extensions - Hide or Show

Windows 7 hides the file extensions of your files by default on a fresh installation.

Have you also checked the file properties for the Read-only tag? Can you manipulate the file completely? (move it to another drive, copy it, delete it etc.)

If you can't something may be having a lock on it, try using this following program to unlock it:-

I assume you're using either HJSplit or 7zip to merge those .001 - .00x files together?

How big is this file?

Can you zip it up by using 7zip/Winzip and upload it here so we can have a look at it?
