alright so i downloaded a file and it was in 73 parts, each ending with 001, 002, 003 etc

ive tried using winrar, 7zip, and hjsplit but none have been successful in getting the file out. i tried renaming the files to .r01 .r02 .r03 etc and tried to extract using winrar, n it says crc failed in -file name here-

idk what to do any suggestions or help for me would be greatly appreciated

thanks to all =]

Dont you zip ALL the files together? WHILE they are still zipped?
THEN unzip it?

Example:
I download a 5 Part download.
Each part is it its on zip? Part1.zip, part2.zip etc etc
Zip part1.zip all the way to part 5.zip, in your case 70 something together, THEN unzip the knew Zip

I don't think it's your fault. It sounds like some of the files could possibly be corrupt. Is there a .sfv file present? You can download a program to verify the archive checksums by using the sfv file.

Well it should work with winrar, so I am still guessing at one or more archives being corrupt. You should check the file size of each one and see if one is smaller then the other (except the end one). Chances are that is the corrupt archive.

Does winrar stop at a certain percentage and archive number?

You could try downloading part 1 again, unless the source you are getting it from is corrupt. Without a .sfv file it's difficult to say which could be the culprit. They're usually included in large multi archive files.

Exclude part 1 and see if the other ones work?
Obviously you will need part 1, but it sounds corrupt to me, re download part 1?
Can i ask what you actually downloaded? XD

Good to hear you're getting further. Hopefully no further archive is corrupt.
