Compressed archives are common on internet, especially on sharing sites. After you have downloaded RAR file from Internet, you need to unpack its contents in order to use it.

The newer versions of WinRAR are using:
  • .rar or exe (SFX) for first volume
  • .part1.rar, .part2.rar, part3.rar ....etc. for any additional volumes


In order to unpack the multi-volume RAR archive, you need to place ALL of the split parts in the same directory and start extraction of the first volume. The program will automatically use all of the parts to extract the content of the archive.
