HI !!

Can anyone please tell me is there any software to extract files from an incomplete zip/rar file.
Actually i have an incomplete downloaded zip file in my computer and I just want to extract only that much of the file content which is present in the zip file.

Also is there a way to extract files from split zip/rar files individually and later join them??

Thanks

Not really possible because if the file's corrupt or incomplete, it's got no way of knowing what can be extracted as all the info isn't available.

The easiest way is just to download the ZIP file again, if it came from the internet.

Even I thought so. I have downloaded that complete zip file again (successfully this time). It contained 5 mp3 files. But when i opened that older incomplete zip file using WinRAR, it was able to display 3 of those 5 files and also sizes of first two of them were accurate while 3rd file was incomplete.

So i thought it should be possible to extract just those 2 files from zip file.
