downloaded rarand par2 files whats next

Postby tojo_rod » Tue Sep 27, 2005 11:49 pm

I downloaded the rar files and the par2 files. I ran quickpar onthe par2 files. It says no repaired are needed. I ran winrar it said some of the archives are missing. Sohow do I use the par2 files so that I am able to extract the files.And once extracted what do I need to doto make a complete file. - I'm new to this. Can some lead me in the right direction, please. Is there a guide for creating files from rar and par2 files?

The PAR files and rar files should be in the same directory by default (I'm assuming they already are)
D/clicking on one of the PAR files should launch Quickpar, which in turn should check the integrity of the rar files.
i.e. whether any blocks are missing (incomplete) or any
files are missing.You can only do a repair if you have enough PAR files to cover missing blocks/files.
Below is what you would see if you didn't have enough PAR files


edit: make sure your version of Winrar is up-to-date
