    Hello.


    Every time I tried to open, the .rar file is downloaded from a folder on your computer WinRAR says: "CRC failed in file name. The file is corrupt"


    I used the function of internal restoration in WinRAR, but my .rar archive hasn’t recovered.


    What to do?


    Thank you in advance!
     
  2. Putting aside the possibility the archive could be irrecoverably corrupt; First try un-installing WinRAR, restarting your computer then downloading and reinstalling the latest version of WinRAR.

    Then try to repair and re open the archive with WinRAR. It may also be worth temporarily disabling your antivirus in case it is interfering with WinRAR.

    If WInRAR does not work, then try using 7-Zip instead .

    Hope that helps for now.

    Try this guide below or read helpful topics with many various opinions of users, last solution I would advise you only in case you lost a hope to get back your .rar archive

    Try this:
    Open the file in WinRAR (download from internet if you don't have one).
    Press your right mouse-button.
    Click on "Repair archive", or press Alt+R.
    Click on Browse button and select a folder where you want to keep the repaired archive.
    There will be two options ("Treat the corrupt archive as RAR" and "Treat the corrupt archive as ZIP").
    Select any one of your choice (or see which one will work) and click on OK button.
    Go to the folder where you have kept the repaired archive and open it (Repaired archive will be named as rebuilt.*.rar or rebuilt.*.zip, where * is the name of original archive).
