.R01 File Extension

WinRAR Multi-Volume Compressed Archive File

The .r01 file extension belongs to the first compressed file (or sometimes it's .r00) in a collection (known as multi-volume) of files that make up a compressed archive, for example .r00 to .r40

These files are used to split-down large compressed files in to manageable chunks. This makes storing the file much easier, for example when trying to fit a 900mb file on to a 700mb CD.

The collection of files should include a file with the extension .SFV (Simple file verification) which checks that the correct number of files exist and that they have not changed since the multi-volume archive was created.

Okay so they are broken down, is it possible to put them back together? Into one single HDTV XVID file while preserving the integrity and quality of the file???

Yes. Use hjsplit to join and split.
