Winrar can't extract files

Question

I have a rar file that gives an error message that there are no files to extract.

The file is several hundred megabytes large and I can see the files in the winrar application.

Can I repair the rar?

Is the RAR file encrypted? If you've put a password on the file, you will need to use WinRar or something like 7-ZIP to decrypt the file before ou can get data from it.

Perhaps give 7-Zip a shot. It's freeware that should be able to decompress anything .rar

If the file is corrupted, damaged, you might be out of luck. Do you have it on a backup? That's one of the #1 reasons all users should have a quality backup solution.
