PostSubject: [TUT] Repairing Corrupted RAR Archives with Recovery Record   Thu Apr 19, 2012 8:55 am

If you download stuff off the internet, most likely, you have encountered files having the RAR extension. It’s the format of the popular archiving software WinRAR, the purpose of which is to split big files into smaller chunks and to lower the file size. However, there are times which they can be corrupted due to several reasons such as the upload/download process, problems with the server, internet connection, etc. :rant:

This guide teaches you how to repair a corrupted RAR archive with the help of Recovery Record, I made this guide because a lot of users are having problems extracting the content(s) of the archive due to volume corruption, CRC errors, etc (especially if the file is downloaded from MediaFire, read about it [URL="http://www.symbianize.com/showthread.php?t=164471"]here)[/URL]. Maybe some of you already know about it, but a lot of users don’t, especially newbies, so I created this guide for the sake of “noobs”. Very Happy

What you need:

- WinRAR, if you don’t have it, you can download it [URL="http://www.mediafire.com/?lbw2e5oyy1y"]here[/URL].

- A little bit of common sense. :rolleyes:

Here we go. Very Happy

I downloaded a file split in 6 parts (200MB each) posted [URL="http://www.symbianize.com/showpost.php?p=2224715&postcount=76"]here[/URL] (uploaded by jaymastergwapo). Very Happy

While I was extracting its content, I encountered an error saying that three parts are corrupted. :upset:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Instead of wasting bandwidth re-downloading the corrupted part(s), check first if the archive has a Recovery Record. To check if it’s present, check the Properties of the archive (Right-click >> Properties). Smile

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

If it’s present, you have a good chance of fixing the archive, otherwise, sad to say, you can’t repair the archive. You can just re-download the corrupted part or tell the uploader to re-upload it. :slap:

Next step is to open any part with WinRAR and click the “Up one level” button. Highlight the corrupted part(s) (in my case, there are three), go to Tools and select “Repair Archive” or just simply press “Alt+R”. A box will pop up and select “Treat the corrupt archive as RAR”, and click “OK”. Very Happy

Then the repairing process will begin. 👏

Wait until you see the message “Done”, and then click “Close”. 👍

New file(s) (in my case, there are three) will show up with their filename having the prefix “fixed.”.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Move the corrupted part(s) in other location (I just created a folder inside that directory), just in case.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

After moving the part(s), rename the repaired file(s), just remove the prefix “fixed.”, so that it’ll have the same file name along with the other parts. Wink

After renaming the file(s), you can now extract the content(s) of the archive(s) without errors. Very Happy

In my case, it’s the Pacquiao-Cotto fight. Very Happy

This is just the most common case of repairing corrupted archives, there are other cases which you have to use a Hex Editor to fix the archive. I’ll make a guide on it when I find corrupted archives which suit that case. Very Happy

Here’s a [URL="http://riepersnest.tripod.com/rar/step2.htm"]link[/URL] to that type of case, though this guide is pretty much outdated. Laughing

Thanks for reading. Smile

Feel free to ask questions. Very Happy
