Hi Guys,

While extracting some .RAR files, I received an error message. Have a look at the screenshots below. What do they mean?

I searched several sites to solve the problem but no result. Have you any idea?

Please help me to get a remedy.

Thank you for the solutions.

Hello,

This is a common example of RAR file error which refers that the file is impaired or corrupt. Follow the following steps and you may have solution to your problem.

1. First attempt for WINRAR repair. Press ALT+R for WINRAR program and you will find a Repair Prompt.

2. Select Archive as a RAR file and click OK.

3. If still the problem persists, look for recovery record of the impaired file and repair the file.

If you are unable to find recovery record then you might have to opt for a software tool to repair them.

Or when you are extracting the files go for ‘Extract To’ option. The ‘Extract path and Options’ window will appear. Click on ‘Keep Broken Files’ check box.

Now when WINRAR encounters any problem it does not discard everything and you will find the files in path specified. The files might be broken but utility of some files might be useful.

Hi.

To fix it find exactly which files are corrupted. To be sure open each file at time. When opening WinRAR will tell you when you find an corrupted file. When you found it simply press ALT+R. ALR+R is WinRAR command to fixing corrupted archives. Also there is YODOT an simple tool for fixing corrupted .rar archives. YODOT can be found here YODOT WinRAR fixer.
