    Question Extracted Rar files disappear after being extacted - Ubuntu Natty

    For some reason, sometimes, when I extract rar files the files that I unrar disappear... is there anything behind this?

    Please assist.

    Try to extract the file using the terminal:
    Code:
    cd path/to/dir
    unrar e file.rar
    And see if unrar returns any error message.

    Actually the unrar command didnt really work... so I used the 7zip-rar syntax
    and it worked

    I posted a tutorial about it for those other people having the same issue:
