This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I think this is just Too Basic, and therefore Off Topic, for ELU. – FumbleFingers Jan 28 '13 at 22:05

The attached....has is correct, because it is a singular item. And it's fine to say the second line that if none suit, to let you know.

"Has files" is correct. "The attached" is singular, not plural. It's irrelevant that the files are plural.

"If none of them are suited to what you are looking for..."
