WinRar help

I just finished downloading the first TV series of 'under the dome'.. there are fiveteen files all in rar format, all in the same directory. all with the same password..

Now. rather than unraring each episode one by one, how do I get WinRAR to unrar the whole fiveteen files in one go..

If the files came from a legitimate source there'd be no password, I'm afraid we can't help you here.

Technically speaking, since those are different files, they have been made with different sessions of WinRar. If they were a spanned volume (one large or many small files compressed in to chunks with equal size) they would have names like file.z01, file.z02, file.z03 etcetera, since that is the naming standard WinRar uses for spanned archiving. ONE of them would be called file.rar and be the "starting" file of the whole spanned volume.

This could of course differ slightly depending on whether the original packager chose to use inherent RaR files, or ZIP, which WinRaR also support.

You won't. They're fake.

Winrar Only using 2GB ram?
Hey, I often extract batches of big files with winrar. Lately I've been noticing that winrar is only using 2GB (total ram usage) when extracting before the process slows down to clean out the memory (5-10 seconds where it stands stil) and when it's down to 1.6GB it speeds up again. I'm wondering...

WinRar.
So, I have a video file which is 1.6GB. I have archived it with Winrar, so it got 1.4GB. Then I have archived that rar, and now it is 240Mb. Is this even possible... will it go corrupt when extracted?
