    2. A find archive window will be opened, select corrupt rar file from your system

    3. Click on open button

    4. Press Alt+R

    5. Repairing File Name.rar will be opened

    6. Click on browse to save repaired file at desired location

    If your file is highly corrupted and you need to use software then you can use additional software. You can use recovery toolbox for ZIP. You can find it here http://goo.gl/pYF63J

  • File corruption in computers has become very common these days. Just like any other computer files, a ZIP file is also prone to corruption. If you ever face corruption in ZIP files, you should use the WinRAR utility. It has a couple of built-in features which you can use here: 

    • The built-in repair feature that can repair corrupt archive (ZIP or RAR)
    • The built-in data extraction feature to extract data from a corrupt archive file

    Thanks.
