Sometimes you could receive corrupted rar archives,

this is the case, hot to fix the crc errors present in a rar file.

It's quite simple using the WinRar utility.

Just run the following few steps:


  • Right click on the archive
  • Select "Extract to"
  • In the "Miscellaneous" block select the "Keep Broken Files" option ("Estrai i file danneggiati" in Italian)

  • Every time a popup appears click on the close button.

Do you know any way to do this job from linux/Mac OSX from the command line?
