As it happens with any other files, sometimes the unpacker reports an error when opening a RAR file. Of course, there will be no problems at all if it is possible to download the archive again.
But what to do if an archive with RAR extension does not want to open and no other copies exist? It is important to understand that RAR users have a definite advantage over those who prefer ZIP archives, because RAR is easier to repair. Moreover, the very possibility of recovery is built into some popular archivers, such as WinRAR.
If you encounter a damaged RAR archive and cannot recover it with standard WinRAR tools, use RAR Recovery Kit . The program fixes incorrect RAR files. Allows you to completely avoid or minimize loss of compressed data.
The program scans and analyzes the damaged archive, collects information about what can be extracted from the file. Displays a folder tree and a list of files that can be extracted on the screen.
The user selects the items to be saved. Depending on the degree of damage to the archive, some of the files may not be saved completely or incorrectly – the program will display these file properties before saving.
