I downloaded a movie from the net and it was in a WinRAR format. So I downloaded WinRAR to extract the files, but when I tried to extract the files I received this error:
l3_DR_x264_06B43E6E_part01.rar: Invalid or corrupt authenticity information
l3_DR_x264_06B43E6E_part02.rar: Invalid or corrupt authenticity information

l3_DR_x264_06B43E6E_part07.rar: Invalid or corrupt authenticity information
l3_DR_x264_06B43E6E_part08.rar: Invalid or corrupt authenticity information
I tried to check if my WinRAR was up to date and it was. Is there something wrong with the file I downloaded or is it my WinRAR?
Invalid or corrupt authenticity information in WinRAR
Hello Mr. Anderson,
To make you understand what is WinRAR and how it works, first let me tell you that WinRAR is an application for windows operating system and other systems too. It is used to open, compress/decompress, split and extract RAR files that are downloaded or available on your pc. It can be also called as a powerful archive manager which can create backups for data and can decompress other file formats (like ZIP) too.
Dear anderson, the problem you are having is very common among the users of WinRAR. Let me tell you that it is very important to make sure that the movie parts are fully downloaded while downloading movie files which are in rar format to be completely extracted by WinRAR. If the files are not completely downloaded, the application can not extract or decompress those files as they did not match with each other because of incomplete download. You can check the following video and can have a good idea about it:
This video provides the manual on how WinRAR can be used properly.
WINRAR can be also found as a evaluation copy. However, you can still manage to extract files using the application. If you want to download the latest version of the application, here is the link:
On that note, I make you very much aware about the fact that you may have the latest version of this application, but if the files are not completely downloaded, you will not be able to extract those files. So make sure those are fully downloaded.
If those files are fully downloaded, make sure your application is not a trial version and if it is, you can buy it online from the same link that i have given you to download it.
To help you to be more clear about using WinRAR, here are some more links where you will more information on using WINRAR properly:
Best wishes to you, For further information, write your questions and i will be there as soon as i can.
