You don't say, but I'm assuming that the data is being recorded
using usrp_rx_cfile.py.  The files contain nothing but the binary
samples.   You may want to consider encoding the decimation rate and
center frequency in the filename, or writing the file using something
other than gr.file_sink(...).  Note that in general, the guts of GNU
Radio have no clue as the actual sample rate of data streaming through
the blocks.  That's a feature, not a bug.

If the decimation is D, the complex baseband sample rate is 64e6 / D.
