Default Get error when open rar

(I am asking this question on behalf of a co-worker).

- We have an 11 Gigabyte RAR (WinRAR) file.
- When we try to uncompress the file we are getting a CRC (checksum) error.
- We are using the latest version of WinRAR (3.4.2).
- The WinRAR repair utility is not working on the file.
- We are unable to extract the and keep it even if it is bad (WinRAR allows you to do this sometimes...extract without confirmation does not work).

Any help would be appreciated!!!!

Try using 7Zip Download. It will work with rar files and maybe extract the broken file.

WinRAR has a built-in function that lets you bypass CRC errors. During the normal process, the extracted file is deleted once the error occurs. Right-click the RAR and select "Extract Files..." to open the general options window. Under "Miscellaneous," put a check by "Keep Broken Files." The file saves to the folder you specify, despite the CRC data. Many files will not work using this method if they are too damaged, but some will. You might be able to help also program RAR Recovery Toolbox. There is a demo version and you can verify whether this utility is useful to you or not. http://www.oemailrecovery.com/rar_recovery.html
