Extracting Data from Corrupted files using WinRAR

I’ve pretty much encountered this problem once in a while. I have a couple of RAR files, out of which one or two either have a CRC error or is corrupted. And finally, when you try to extract the complete file, all you get is an empty folder.

To bypass this problem, follow the step given below.

While choosing the location to save the file to be extracted, check the Keep Broken files checkbox, and you’re all set. 🙂

Here’s a screenshot.
