File compression tool does make it easier to share files among other folks, as it shrinks files size without hurting quality (well, to some extent), which an ancient person might even find somewhat magical. One of the compression archives used by most people is RAR. Even though, file compression has its own use, users often damage the RAR files amidst the compression process. We often come across corrupted RAR archives that cannot be extracted due to voids or incomplete binaries, and there is no way to open the files normally, which can be quite devastating especially if the contained files are of something important. Before losing all hope, you may try AutoUnpack as a last resort. It is a Windows application that repairs your damaged and corrupted archives, but if, for some reason, it fails to perform its required task, you can take a look at Recovery Toolbox for RAR.

It does not matter which application was used to create the RAR archive; Recovery Toolbox for RAR can access it.
