WinRAR extraction problems

1)  We have an 11 Gigabyte RAR  (WinRAR) file.
2)  When we try to uncompress the file we are getting a CRC (checksum) error.
3)  We are using the latest version of WinRAR.
4)  The WinRAR repair utility is not working on the file.
5)  We are unable to extract the and keep it even if it is bad (WinRAR allows you to do this sometimes...extract without confirmation does not work).
Any help would be appreciated!!!!

Hi :welcome:


The RAR file is corrupted and because it seems the creator didn't include a Recovery Record you are out of luck, you need to get a good copy of the file.
