Thread: Weird Data Arrrangement

  1. #1
    So I was looking through torrents for Windows 2000 and I came accross one with a large amount of seeds and peers, but it had a whole bunch of .rar files. How are a bunch of .rar files turned into an operating system after you download that torrent?

    You mean like IND.rar 001, 002 , and so on ? I could never understand that my self . I just unpack and look for the setup exe. or the nfo file to help explain it all .

    I'd look for an ISO file or a bin and cue file to D/L and burn .

    It's used to spread a large file(s) across many smaller compressed rar files. Once you have all the files, you can unpack whatever is inside with Winrar. http://www.rarlab.com/

    Wierd. The problem was solved by simply extracting all the corresponding .rar's to a folder, taking the form of an unflawed .iso. Wierd, huh?

    Not really, that's what they're meant to do.

    Movies, games, tv eps, etc. are always posted that way so that they're seperate small files rather than one large file.
