How to fix CRC failed file is corrupt error from .rar or .zip

Hello,

When compressed file does not unpack correctly in .zip or .rar extraction we get error or warning saying

WinRAR:Diagnostic messages
F:xyz.zip:CRC failed in xyz file. The file is corrupt

If file size is small than you can try to re-download it.

Otherwise you can try to extract file by ignoring errors.

follow this steps:

1) right click on file
2) select extract files
3) in Miscellaneous options check “Keep broken files

save settings

In most cases this method works just fine.
