Question Question about decompressing a split file archive

I have a huge rar compressed split file archive at my webspace but not enough space to decompress the file.

Is it possible to decompress the split file archive and deleting already decompressed parts on the fly? Currently, I'm using winrar 3.70 beta 2 but it seems that it hasn't such an option.

Sure. What is the archive format? Where are you doing the decompressing? OS version? Isn't WinRAR an Windows program? Programming skills and preferences? How will you identify what you want to keep and what to delete?

Answers to these questions are essential to answering your question if you think about it. Or you could re-post in the Psychic and Clairvoyant forum.
