  2. Corrupted file RAR

    If the archive has been created using WinRAR, why don't you try WinRAR itself? It has a built-in repair feature for repairing corrupted archive (ZIP as well as RAR). Follow the steps given below:
    • Open WinRAR application in your system.
    • Now click on File tab > Open or simply press Ctrl+O.
    • A small window "Find Archive" will pop up. Locate the corrupt RAR archive from your system directory and select it.
    • Now click Open button.
    • Click Tools tab > Repair archive or simply press Alt+R.
    • Again a small window "Repairing File name.rar" will pop up.
    • Now click Browse to select a location to save the repaired archive.
    • Check the box "Treat the corrupt archive as RAR" and click OK.
    • WinRAR will start repairing of corrupt RAR archive. Once it gets completed click Close.
    I hope the above steps will help you repair the corrupted RAR archive.

    Thanks.

    How to use 7zip to open RAR files

    7zip is opening zip files without problems. These are all for downloaded (not saved files).
    When attempting to open RAR files the screen will only flash.
    Uninstalling and reinstalling 7zip had no impact.
    Downloading and installing winzip makes it the default application then RAR files open.
    Un-installation of winzip making 7zip the default application allows it to open zip but not RAR.
    This is an image of attempted manual right click.
    It asks for the application to open the file. 7zip is selected and the screen flashes.
    Switching browsers from Chrome to IE has no impact.
