rar archive error

Recommended Posts

Hello,

On the computer stored, many files with the extension .rar, but one of the files no longer open and gives an error message: "Packed data CRC failed in volume name. The volume is corrupt"

 

What was the reason - have no idea.

 

However, I am trying to restore function in WinRAR - unsuccessfully.

 

Can anyone suggest how to open a file?

We can suggest a few ways of maybe having a go at it, however we can't link you to any tools to do it.

 

You see, there are really painful people out there who spam these kinds of tools (can you believe it?) on forums like ours. So we now remove all links to tools so that these horrible people can't peddle their rubbish and you have a nice forum to play in without any worry about malware.

 

If anyone comes along and posts links to any tools, the link is removed by our hardworking mods. But I will leave you in the capable hands of the denizens of this section and their immense knowledge now.

 

Toodles!

"Packed data CRC failed in volume name. The volume is corrupt"

Generally means the file is lost as it has been corrupted.

If it doesn't work for your rar file, then you may look at topics where experienced users can help you and give a solution or last method is suitable only when your .rar archive is fully crashed

The process of doing this is as follows:

  1. Right click on the RAR files and from the list, click on the extract files option.
  2. A window will appear showing where a folder can be selected and where it may be saved.
  3. Choose the check box which gives the option ‘Open Broken file’.
  4. Click OK at the bottom of the window.
  5. A warning will pop up but it should be disregarded at this point.

Oh! We also often remove links to other sites 'cause we have our own brilliant experts here who generally know what's what. And you see, horrible, malicious people post on boards that don't clean up as well as we do and then link across to them as a way of circumventing our policy.

 

I know right!
