    Hi

    Sometimes i make assumptions. Sorry about that.

    I'll look around to see if i can find a GUI (window) way for you to do it.

    This method uses the terminal.

    In my directory there is a rar file called a.rar.

    Code:
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/rara % ls
    a.rar
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/rara %
    i can unzip the file using the command unrar. It has the -kb switch to keep broken file and uses the e command to extract the files.

    Take a look at this.
    Code:
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/rara % ls       
    a.rar
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/rara % unrar e -kb a.rar

    Extracting  aa                                                        OK 
    Extracting  aaa                                                       OK 
    All OK
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/rara % ls
    a  aa  aaa  a.rar
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/rara %
    I'll look at see if i can't find a method that does not use the terminal for you though.

    Kind regards
