RAR - extracting from a corrupt file?

Hi, I recently downloaded a rar archive which is corrupt, as I can view the contents but not extract them. Is there any way to get anything out of it or will I have to download it over again?

You'll have to download it again. If the same thing happens, try using 7Zip to open and extract from the archive.

In WinRar there's an option to keep broken files. You get some of the content, then it halts at the error. This way you can (sometimes) get a % of the files. If it's one big file, you're out of luck.
