Thread: Extracting Utilities.

  1. #1

    Default Extracting Utilities.

    Hey,

    I'm fairly new to Linux, and when I needed a rar utility, I downloaded unrar, and unp, and used terminal to udecompress.

    I've just been required to download files in parts. So for example.
    Download1.part1.rar
    Download1.part2.rar

    In windows, you would just highlight both files, click 'extract to', and they would join the contents, however extracting just one wouldn't work, and you would end up with a corrupt file.

    I'm expecting that using the unp commands wouldn't work with split files. Is there a utility that is designed for this?

    Thanks.

    Generally you need to extract the first file with unrar. Other parts will be extracted automatically.
    Run in terminal:
    Code:
    unrar x Download1.part1.rar
