If you attempted to open a RAR file only to get an error message that the archive is either in an unknown format or damaged, do not fret. Nowadays, there are several tools out there aimed to help you repair and recover a wide variety of archives that contain valuable information or backups.
As the name implies, Yodot RAR Repair is a tool designed to restore RAR archives that are corrupted or damaged to various errors, such as the one due to the file extension, for instance.
After a swift and uneventful setup, you are welcomed by a small window that prompts you to specify the path to the file that needs to be repaired. Unfortunately, the tool does not support drag and drop and hence, you need to navigate to the desired location.
The tool can come in handy in those times when you split a large archive so you can send it over the network, as this is the time when an archive is likely to get corrupted. Functionality-wise, the program is as simple to use as it looks, meaning that all you need to do is specify the path and the app does the rest without any further configuration.
It is worth mentioning that the tool works with all types of RAR files, including large ones that have over 4GB. According to the developer, the tool can also fix CRC errors (virus infection, extraction error, download issues, so on and so forth) and works with files stored on any storage media, so you do not necessarily need to move the file to the PC to check it.
All in all, Yodot RAR Repair is a simple and straightforward tool that enables you to restore all types of RAR files in just one click, irrespective of size and location.
