Hi friends ..
this is a summarized example of my problem :

suppose you have a rar file which is splited into 4 parts like this :
a.part1.rar & a.part2.rar & a.part3.rar & a.part4.rar
then somebody comes and rename them to :
abc.rar & acb.rar & bca.rar & cba.rar
now you want to combine and extract the files but you don't know which file is which part ...
so...what's the solution ?
any way to find the real parts ?

Hi Morteza,

There is away to do this, its not fun though.

Right click on one of the files and click Extract here.

It will then prompt you that a file is missing and ask you to locate it.

Hopefully who ever renamed the files has done it in some order, which will make it easy to pick the correct one. If not then you are going to have to try each one until you get it right. Once you've got it right and extracted the contents, delete the badly named files. Then if you still need the contents RARed, create a new archive.

Probably not what you wanted to hear but, as far as im aware, there is no other way.

If you have WinRAR, you select the file and click info on the toolbar, it will then show you a window with...

RAR volume (number 1)
RAR volume (number 2) and so forth.

do this for every file to get the correct sequence and rename the files 1abc.rar, 2abc.rar, 3abc.rar, 4abc.rar or whatever name you choose.

Make sure that all of those .rar files have been saved inside a folder that you've created for them before you right-click one of them and select "Extract Here".
