I used tar to create a tar and gzipped file on Linux. I then FTP'd it to another Linux server, which turned it into two files

file.tar.gz
file.tar.gz.1

I assume the FTP program split it out. I've copied both files to my PC now, and I'd like to reconstitute it. How do I do that? My Google-fu has failed me. Both files can be decompressed individually but there seems to be some duplicates, which is odd.

Alternately I could put it back together on unix then download again, but since it's 4GB I'd rather as I'm near my cap.

Start with comparing file sizes. Check they add up. Use tar -ztf to list archive contents. To combine files: cat file1 file2 > file3. Also, verify integrity with md5sum file1 or sha256sum, done on each end of the network. If they match you're good.
