Hi,

I have a file that is divided into 76 .rar files. I tried double clicking part1.rar file which is a self-extracting archive. The extraction process took quite long and then it stopped saying "files corrupted".

I opened the file using winrar, and a message was shown that a certain file has "corrupt header".

Now the file/files are really important, and there are no second copies. How do I extract all the files including the corrupt ones?

Where did you obtain those 76 .rar files from, and what program/suite are they associated with?

These are business folders containing videos, images and documents. They are not associated with any particular suite. Only after extracting them, can they be opened.

Sometimes - using winrar - you can get around CRC and Header errors by selecting Extract To, and choosing the Keep Broken Files option.

winrar also has a repair that may work.

May have to if you do not see the repair button to go to options, settings, toolbar, buttons and then put a check by the repair.

I'm using SysInfoTools Archive Recovery software. It allows me to repair not only corrupted RAR archive but also other compressed archives like: ZIP, TAR, TAR.GZ and 7Z. First I used it's demo version. The result was quite satisfying. The demo version is absolutely free and works very similar to the full version.
Regards!
Hey, I just found you here. I have a corrupted TAR.GZ file. You mentioned a software here that supports multiple archives recovery? Is it able to repair corrupted TAR.GZ archive? Have you ever tried to repair a TAR.GZ archive? I need your help. The archive contains very important data. Please help.
