Corrupted files in my laptop with no reason

Asked By 80 points N/A Posted on -

I downloaded a file through a P2P network. I am launching those files through WinRar but it throws an error stating that the file cannot be open because it is corrupt. Are there any ways to repair it? It's very frustrating to search and download a file only to find out that it is corrupt, most especially when it is 100MB or more or if it take too much time to download it. Do we have a technology where we can know if a file is corrupt before we download it?

Hi Cyril!

If you’re downloading this bulky size of file you need to look for alternative way on how to download it easier. If it’s from your client ask them to provide you sub-divided files. They need also to encrypt this file into 4-5 parts so that it will be faster for you to download the files.

Why do we need to sub-divide the file? If you have 3 Mbps of download speed (expect that this will get as far as 2.6-2.8 Mbps), this will give you at least an hour or an hour and a half to download 1 whole file. In the middle of your download session you might encounter problems in your network that you might lose parts of this data. This is off course a very important file for you. Before downloading the file, turn off your firewall and antivirus for the meantime to avoid conflicts with the file that you are downloading.
