That's normal, because if your RAR-archive has 1597 parts, then The Unarchiver must specify 1597 different file types, which is impossible, AFAIK.

The unarchiver does recognize the RAR Archive it also use to recognize the r01 r02 r03 then it stopped. now when I click on a r01 file it doesnt even know what to open the file with. I uninstalled and reinstalled the Unarchiver but no luck. I can for the reconization just dont know why I need to all of a sudden
