Sometimes I use WinRAR for various purposes, generally for packing important documents. I have one file, this is quite huge 8-10 GB. It stopped opening yesterday evening, I used built-in feature, but it couldn't aid. At opening WinRAR popped up The Tohd.rar header is corrupt. I visited Google for searching answers, but until today, I haven't found a solution.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but, when a file is too severely corrupted, repair tools are not going to be able to repair the damage.

 

Tip: If it's important, you should have at least two backup copies, with one of those being off site.

Hi,

 

Did you use the option "Add recovery record" when you created that so important file?

I am not sure that your file severely corrupted, but if yes, you refer to Google, I entered in it such query as how to open a corrupt rar file.

It showed many articles, guides, tutorials and etc. I chose some of them, just try it, and I hope your problem will be solved. Some of them could help in cases with hard crash of data...
