These files are RAR archives (but not necessarily rare).

To run them, you have to get correct software, in this case, winrar.

Once this software is installed, all the archives you have already downloaded, will be recognized at once by Winrar.

To unrar these archives, make a right-clic on one of the archives and select " extract to..."


A new file, having the same name as the archives of departure, you will find the created files inside.
How do i fix/repair my (.rar, r01, 001, 002,...) files?
After downloading a file, sometimes some are corrupted or some part(s) are missing.

In order to be able to use those files, you have to fix them with Quickpar.

Download it here Quickpar and install it

After the software is installed, double-clic on the “.par2” file


The software automaticaly fies the file(s) mean while clic on « monitor” and “auto repair”.


Once QUICKPAR is done, you will get a message like : « repair not needed » or « file fixed ».


Enjoy, your file is ready to go !! :D

In case Quickpar fails to fix your files, it might mean that it is too damaged or that is misses too many files to repair it.
Try to re-download the file or find another source.
