    The Ultimate Guide to .rar, .r01, and .001 files

    OK, so you downloaded a game or a movie and all you got are a bunch of files with any of the extensions above? Here's what you have to do:

    1. Goto RarLabs or RarSoft and grab WinRAR, a file-compressing utility. If you've heard of WinZip, this is practically the same but with better compression ratio and a different format (RAR).

    2. Install WinRAR with SHELL support

    3. Right click the first file you have in the folder (either if its a .rar, a .r01, or a .001) and click "Extract to <name-of-the-file>&#092;". If .001 files dont have this option in its right-click menu, double-click the file and then "Select a program from a list". If WinRAR isnt on that list already, click browse and go to C:&#092;Program Files&#092;WinRAR (or wherever you installed it) and select WinRAR. After that, Extract the files to a new folder.

    4. After this, the new folder would hold either the bin/cue or the iso or the movies. If its a bin/cue or iso, you should burn it with Nero or mount it with Alcohol 120%/Daemon Tools. Check the pinned topics for that.

    NOTE: If you want to check the integrity of all the downloaded files, and with the bunch of files there is a .sfv file, grab yourself QuickSFV, a utility that helps you check that every file you downloaded isn&#39;t corrupt.

    Hope this helps.... just made it cuz i saw lotsa ppl asking this lately.
    w0rd up... keep p2p alive

    if you get a tar file you need to open it with winrar to extract the rar files
    then you need to open the rar files with winrar to extract the file

    Worthy of a pin I reckon. B)

    If it does get pinned I would add a link to the appropriate topic when you mention mounting images with Alcohol 120% and Daemon Tools.

    Good job.

    Makes sense, there are a lot in here. The Bittorrent section would be the wrong place I suppose, but that does seem to be where all the .001 questions come up.
