Windows 7: After extraction canít open some illustrator files.

After extraction canít open some illustrator files.

Hi, I use ADOBE Illustrator cs6. And Iíve mat a problem with opening files. A few days ago Iíve downloaded an 13gb archive with lots of pictures and image samples and so on. Today Iíve extracted it without any problem. And started to work with them, but some of them doesnít open. I understand that the problem isnít in my Illustrator but in archive or in these files. Tried to re-extract themÖ the same problem. Extraction is OK, some files are bad. So I think that problem is in the files. May be there is some way to recover them? Hope for your help.

I'd agree that it's possible the individual files were corrupted before creating the archive. Is the download in .zip or .rar format or some other compression format? Very large downloads, even small ones, can get corrupted along the way but since you can extract files it appears that's not the case here, the download itself didn't get corrupted.

Deleting select files/folders from a RAR without extraction (WinRAR)
I've a bit of a problem here... for the past year I've been attaching different kinds of data to a single .RAR file. This left me with a 245GB .RAR, which I understand, shouldn't have created in the first place. But I did, sadly. Now, to my knowledge WinRAR doesn't seem to have an option to...
