Can't get image to card

Hi

I downloaded the 16gb Legendary Arcade Recalbox image for a pi front end on to a mac. I can't seem to extract the files inside the main file. I'm tying to get a .img but currently it's 12 files .7z.001 to .7z.012. My unarchiver won't extract them. What am I supposed to do with these files? Do I need to open it on a PC instead. I can't figure it out. Thanks .

Thanks so much for that. It worked great. Now my image is slightly too big for the card. Image is 15.93gb and the card is 15.53gb. Is there anything I can do about that?  Are there better cards available that have a tiny bit more space? Mine is an Apacer. Should I just use a 32gb card? Thanks again.

For Mac I dont know but for Windows this might work to shrink it down.I think Sandisk probably is the best way to go.If you have a 32gb card you should use that and then you also have space to put on more games if you want

HOW TO: Shrink (PiShrink) an Image (IMG) in Windows

Awesome, just ended up buying a bigger gard. Got the image working and it's great. Thanks for your help. That keka program worked a treat.
