SRR file extension - ReScene Data Recovery archive
What is srr file? How to open srr files?
File type specification:
The srr file extension is associated with ReScene, a mechanism for backing up and restoring the metadata from "scene" released RAR files. It was created to support the x264 community, but it works for other "scenes" as well.
The srr file format contains backups of all parts of the RAR files that are not the actual archived data. It can also store any other miscellaneous release files (e.g. SFV, NFO, etc). It is also an extensible format that will allow for other uses in the future.
In its current version ReScene is pretty simple to use. The first thing you'll need is one of the scene releases I've been talking about. They will typically come with one or more RAR files and an SFV file that contains CRC values for those RAR files.
If you run the ReScene command-line utility (srr.exe) and pass the SFV file in as a parameter, it will read the SFV and locate all the RAR files from the release. The utility then creates a .srr file. The SRR file contains a copy of the SFV you specified as well as a backup of all those metadata blocks I mentioned earlier. It's typically a very small file (maybe 10-20KB depending on the number of RARs), and it is created very quickly (typically <1 second). Once you have that .srr file, you can extract the archive and delete the RAR and SFV files.
To re-create the original release files, all you need is the .srr and the files you extracted from the archive. Pass the .srr file in to the utility to start the reconstruction. The SFV file will be restored from the SRR file, and then each original RAR will be painstakingly (but quickly) reconstructed from the data files and the backed-up blocks in the SRR file. As a final step, you can validate the files against the SFV to make sure they came through the process unscathed.
