Error while inflating RAR file


#1

After upgrading my PC to Windows 10 i cannot extract the .rar files with the help of WinRar file archiver.

The error message: Error while inflating RAR file

So i uninstalled it and reinstalled WinRar and same thing. What’s wrong? help

Make sure you are using the latest version of Winrar. You need Winrar v.5 to unrar RAR5 files.

If you still can’t unrar after updating to latest version, then the RAR file itself might be corrupt. To confirm this, try unrar-ing other RAR files

If it is indeed corrupt, then you can try this RAR repairing software.

If none of the above help, then you’ll just have to move on…

I have no idea, but it sounds like an error you might get if the RAR was corrupt. My suggestion is to try a different compression program like 7-zip. If you get the same or similar results then you might have to consider that the file is damaged.
