OK, I have downloaded from Windows Live Spaces (don't know if this is useful, but might be) a .CAB file containing an Index.XML file and, through to

The index.XML simply has names of all the subsequent files and their offsets. The first has a single 26MB XML file which appears to be an OfflineSyncFile definition which I am guessing is the meta data for all the other files.

Now the question I have is how should i be going about extracting these things and piecing it all back together again.

I have tried WinRAR, which extracts all 800MB for me into unnamed files and randomly named directories. I have also tried the standard extract in Windows Explorer with much the same resusts.
