also a note.
Somtimes .r00 is the first, or even .000
Somtimes they are ***.part1.rar
rars have alot of ways you can name them. The program trys to find the correct files that are neccassary, but doesn't always.
@zim, thats not a consequence of solid exactly. He wouldn't be able to extract this file either way if missing the first volume of the archive.
If there was another file following this large file, and the archive was solid -- then you wouldn't be able to extract this 2nd file w/o all the previous volumes of the archive.
If the archive was not solid, you could extract later files in the archive regardless of what came before it -- as long as you have all the volumes of which this file is a member.
Solid requires all volumes previous and including your target file. Non-solid only requires volumes that include your target file.
Perhaps you know all that.
Winrar trys to be helpful, if you open some volume that isn't the first volume there is a <-- or/and --> on the files names indicating that these file(s) aren't all entirely contained within this volume. "-->" in particular indicates there is a successive volume that wasn't found. In contrast "<--" indicatees a previous volume is nessaccary but may or may not be findable.
Esp. if you open in the middle somewhere, you will see all the files following this volume and files contained in successive volumes. But you won't see any files from previous volumes.
