Extracting RAR in Windows 7

Hi there,

I am running OS Windows 7 Pro 64bit in my PC... I keep on having a corrupt file whenever i extract RAR files especially larger files. Almost all larger RAR (more than 3GB) will have this problem. So far smaller RAR I have no issue...

I have tried extracting the same under different PC (OS Win XP) but without any issue. Which I believe not the RAR files been corrupted by itself

The corrupt files seems to be random.. Sometimes, I manage successful extraction, but sometimes I don't. Can someone advise and help?

PS: I have the same problems even after clean installation.. I have run memtest without any error. I am using 6gb ram

This doesn't answer your question; but I get a lot of corruption with RAR files, too. I have not been able to solve it other than avoiding RAR when possible.

What program(s) are you using to unrar? Winrar has a repair button that may work. Try 7zip, IZArc. I've seen that often this issue had to do with the actual download because of the time it takes. Also, they often seem to be from P2P sites, and are grabbed in parts. Do you use a download program to download? If you have a safe for work, legal example. I will download it and see if it is corrupted for me as well. A Guy

I am using Winrar 64bit to extract ...

Granted that if the downloaded file from p2p maybe broken bcos of the longer time to complete. I believe I am not facing this issue cos i have ever successfully extracted the file in my previous OS and also other PC with no errors. I have even tried it recently on my friends PC who is using Win XP and without any errors.

Only when using Win 7, there errors suface almost in every of my RAR file.. There bond to be one CRC error.
