Some say, I'm addicted to ETS2. But then I say. No, it's ProMods, it's a way of life.

The first thing that may help is to disable the Windows Explorer feature "hide extensions for known file types". Since you have this feature enabled, it is difficult to tell a few of your files apart:

Code: Select all

partial filename       file type
--------------------   ------------------
promods-v227.7z (1)    WinRAR archive
promods-v227.7z.001    WinRAR archive
promods-v227.7z        002 File
...
promods-v227.7z        007 File
Can you take a new screenshot of your folder after disabling this feature?

No your .001 files have wrong names:
The first file has this (1) - remove it.
And the second has one .001 too much soo you can choose one of your .001 files to correct and than you should be able to open the archieve correctly.

@tavgaming101, thank you for providing an updated screenshot. To clarify what Noah_Lukas, said, you have no file named exactly "promods-v227.7z.001":
  • You have a file named "promods-v227.7z (1).001"
  • You have a file named "promods-v227.7z.001.001"
Both of these filenames are different than what the file test tool is expecting. Since these two are likely the same file downloaded twice you should rename one of them to "promods-v227.7z.001", then the file test tool should pass.
