How To Repairing Corrupt .RAR/.ZIP Archive

Here's the steps for repairing a corrupt .RAR/.ZIP Archive file:

  1. Open WinRAR and browse to the folder with your .rar/.zip file.
  2. Highlight the file and click the Repair button from the tool bar.
  3. In the pop-up window, select "Treat the corrupt archive as RAR/ZIP" depending on which type of archive you are trying to repair.
  4. You may get a "Suspicious Entry" pop-up. If so, select All. This may happen several times while repairing.
  5. After WinRAR has completed repairing the archive, click on Close.
  6. To extract your file, highlight your new rebuilt archive.
  7. Next select Commands>Extract without confirmation
  8. The files will start extracting.
  9. The archived files will be extracted to the same folder as the repaired archive.

That's all !
