Frequently Asked Questions


What is DataNumen RAR Repair?

DataNumen RAR Repair(DRAR) (formerly Advanced RAR Repair) is a powerful tool to repair corrupt or damaged RAR and SFX archives. It uses advanced technologies to scan the corrupt or damaged archives and recover your files in them as much as possible, thereby minimizing the loss in file corruption.

Which types of RAR and SFX files can DataNumen RAR Repair be used with?

DataNumen RAR Repair supports to repair RAR and SFX files created by different versions of WinRAR and RAR tools.

How can I determine whether DRAR can repair my RAR or SFX archive successfully, according to the results generated by the demo version?


Please just use the demo version to repair your RAR or SFX archive normally in the "Repair" tab. If the files in the archive can be recovered successfully, you will see a message box after the reparation, where you can see a report of all the recoverable files in the RAR archive. For every recoverable file, the report will display its file name, file size, the original file size, the recovered file size, the recovery ratio, which equals to recovered file size / original file size, and the recoverable status.

According to these information, you will know whether DRAR has worked successfully on your damaged file. If the repair was successful, then please order the full version to get the actually recovered files.


What is the meaning of the recoverable status in the demo report?


In the demo report, if the recoverable status of a file is "Fully Recoverable", the all data in that file can be recovered completely.
