    I have been downloading some movies and the rar expander that I am using isnt working.

    every time I try to expand a .rar file it just hangs there without doing anything and does not open.

    what programs do you all use to expand your .rar files

    Wait, I think I am doing it all wrong.

    I download a file and run the .rar file first and then run MacPar.... Do I only run MacPar if it has a problem?


    Also, what do you guys do if you open .rar and it errors out? I've been deleting and downloading a new version.

    MacPar only if you can't extract it from the rar. What MacPar does is use the Par files to create a new rar and then it extracts. Unrar(what I use) just extracts. MacPar as backup...nicka.

    yeah, just run macpar if there is a problem and you have extra par files... if it extracts fine, no reason to run macpar
