  1. hi, pls pls pls suggest some solutions for this.

    i have 15 .rar part of a movie. next wont open unless previous opens...hope u got what i m saying. splitted in 15 parts of 51mb each.

    the problem is that its 4th .rar part is corrupted. as a result i cant extract the entire movie.

    i tried rar repair software but it just repair that part n extracts only 1 to 4th parts of the 15. also used the repair option in winrar itself but it also extract 152mb of total file size

    i tried enabling the option "save broken files" but it saves files extracted till 4th part n after that it wont extract.

    can anyone help me...m damm confused what to do...downloaded 700mb of movie n i think its going to be wasted.. pls suggest some option to extract the archive files..

    note:- only 4th .rar part is corrupted.

    I don`t know if this`ll help, but it might be worth a try.

    Open Winra and browse to the corrupt .rar file. Click the repair icon and see if it helps.

    If it doesn`t, I think you have no choice but to redownload the file.

    Regards Howard :)
