Corrupted RAR files?

Recommended Posts

I keep getting downloaded RAR files that on extraction says there are no files or they are corrupted or of unknown format, the container shows file size, any help on what to do, this is happening continuously.

first i would suggest using 7-Zip on those files and see if that helps.. :smile:

https://www.7-zip.org/download.html

secondly i think the files ur trying to unzip r from warez sites, correct.. i think that the files contain some sort of patch, crack or keygen and ur antivirus is catching it.. causing ur unzip to fail.. so disable ur antivirus just while u unzip the files.. :pirate:

let me know what happens.. :sun:

Downloads actually came from here, I get a lot of them on occasion. I had already found 7-zip and it works great, Thanks for the reply!

You should give some topics,so we could check.And yes,your antivirus might think that you downloaded virus or something suspicious,but give us links to these topics.

Or you just disabled some functions of Winrar.Like i installed to my mother 32 and 64 bit 7-Zip and whn i uninstalled wrong version of 7-Zip, it actually uninstalls also right 7-Zip

But interesting thing is that WinRar seems to had not working with some of my customers, who are not dealing with files and tried to use .And not WinRar, but other programs, who are unpacking rar files.So there might be some kind of 0-day security flaw.One day files seems to have corrupted and then restarting next day everything works fine and nobody does not know, whats wrong.
