Re: RAR FILE ???

No. If the rar files have md5s or ffps included, you'll find that they match, once all the files are extracted - all else being equal.

Re: RAR FILE ???

It's something like a zip file, I gather - you need something called 'unrar' to extract them.....

Re: RAR FILE ???

program is called Win-Rar--used for the extraction
Rar's normally can be joined with a free program called H-J Split

Re: RAR FILE ???

RAR files were created for Usenet, just FYI.

That have superior spanning ability, meaning you can split one file into many files. This was helpful to overcome some usenet severs' line-limits per message. RARs are still heavily used on usenet, and also, to some extent, PAR files which can help re-create the complete RAR file if part of the RAR is missing from the usenet sever.

Re: RAR FILE ???

RARs also come in handy for sharing DVDs on HUBs.
When you are downloading directly from only one user.
