How to recover the RAR file?

RAR Recovery Kit helps to extract files from corrupted WinRAR archives. RAR Recovery Kit is designed to recover information from corrupted archives of the RAR format. You can use it to completely avoid or at least minimize losses due to compressed data.

RAR Recovery Kit works in the following way:

  1. It scans and analyzes the corrupted archive and extracts all the information it can draw from the WinRAR archive.
  2. RAR Recovery Kit displays a final list of files and folders on the screen.
  3. You can view this list and select only the objects you need to save. Please note that RAR Recovery Kit may recover some files incorrectly, or it may fail to recover some files at all. It depends on how heavily the archive is corrupted.
  4. RAR Recovery Kit saves a selected file on the hard disk.

Extracted files and folders are saved to the specified location, after which they become available for use. It's also important that the source archive isn't modified in any way, because the RAR recover program only reads data from it.
