Rar file

Postby squidol » 25 May 2016, 04:17

Today I has created an archive of important documents. A couple of hours ago, I opened it to extract a couple of files and saw - CRC error. Volume is damaged.

Tell me how to extract the files after such an error?

Maybe the file name is too long, or the archive is in a deep sub-directory( example: C:\MyHardDrive\MyName\CompArchive\backup\thiisanarchiveof importantdocuments.rar).

If that is the case, rename the rar file to something like (doc.rar) then put it in the root directory (C:\) before trying to extract it.

Let me know if this works.
I'm back!

Some suggestions:

  • Did you try to update WinRAR to the latest version? Maybe you created this file with a newer version than you're trying to unpack it with?

  • WinRAR also has a "Repair" option when you run it, have you tried that?

  • Or maybe you still have another copy of the files you need somewhere else? (Recycle Bin?)

The "repair" option only works if the .rar file was created with a recovery record (one of the options when creating the .rar), I think. If it's corrupted and no recovery record, I think you're SOL.

In case winrar function doesn't work you may open .rar archive with the aid of RAR Repair Toolbox, tool has demo on https://www.repairtoolbox.com/rarrepair.html
