How to Unrar/unzip multiple archives at once containing a single file?


Okay I downloaded a bunch of .rar files that all contain a piece of one big file. I am on Debian right now, and I can't open all of them at once, not can I open one at a time. I can't extract anything, so how do I combine all of them together so I can extract the file that all of the files have a part of?

Have you tried to use Ark Archiving Tool?

Extract the first rar file and it should do the rest (I believe).

I use always Ark to extract but this time it won't work. Do I have to archive all these files?

I tried extracting every single file and not even the first one works.

Rename the whole thing or just the .rar extension? Do I start from the first one .r00 and continue to .r14?

Hard to tell but looking at original file names it would seem that it should be

TTT2-sc1.part1.r00
TTT2-sc1.part2.r01
TTT2-sc1.part3.r02

then

TTT2-sc2.part1.r00 - TTT2-sc2.part4.r03
etc

Code:
$for i in `ls *.rar`; do unrar x "$i";done
That should extract all the files for you and hopefully join all the small rar files into a single big rar file. If you get a file exists error, then you need to do CTRL-C to exit because the extraction will have finished.
