Dealing with split-up rar archives. Won't re-join


Hi,

I have tried to re-join a list of sequentially numbered files. Doesn't work successfully. Usually end up with a file half the size of what it should be and won't play. I've included a sample list of file types below for clarification.

2hd.r21 14.3 MB
2hd.r22 14.3 MB
2hd.r23 6.2 MB
2hd.rar 14.3 MB
2hd.sfv

Thank you,
Petey

Simply saying that something "doesn't work" isn't enough. Just how are you trying to extract the archive? Are you getting any error messages? Are you absolutely sure you have the full sequence of subfiles and that they aren't corrupt?

Read the first link below this and give us more info.

As I explained, doesn't work meant that whether I select the .rar file or one of the number sequences, the file that gets created is not close to the size of the combined files size, and it won't run.

If there was an error message I would have included it in the post.

Ark pops up when I select one of the archives. I've not attemped a commmand-line approach to merging the files. I've also tried different split archives collections, so it's not one that's missing a file, the set is complete.

Try in command line. Use unrar t <filename>.rar and see how that goes.

Your sample file list gives the impression that there should be 23 rar segments available, but you have only 4 of them. This way you obviously end up with an in-complete result. You need to get files 2hd.r02 up to 2hd.r20 to make it work.

I only quoted the first few to give a sense of the list. The files run from 00 to 23, and a .rar file itself.

Did you try the command line with "unrar t ..." as I told you? Graphical frontends use to give very little info about what the real problem is.

Worked like a charm, where as clicking on one of the files loaded Ark and that couldn't handle split files correct (but normal .rar's fine).

The file were fine, just needed the correct "e" for extract and "t" to test the 23 file collection for integrity.

Cheers much,
Petey

It's been years since the last time I used ark, but it seems that it isn't any better now than the last time I tried it
