Error Message "CRC Failed in File Name. The File is Corrupt!"


The File data are corrupt. The archive may have been damaged after creation. In this case it is sometimes possible to repair it if the recovery record has been applied.

It also could have been damaged during creation due to hardware failures (usually caused by an over-clocked CPU or unreliable memory).

In the latter case the recovery record will not help. The only way to detect if the repair will help is to try to apply the repair command to the archive and test the results.

Check if you have installed the most recent version of WinRAR. If not, please download the actual WinRAR/RAR version here. We always try to improve WinRAR’s functionality with each update.
