Extract multipart rar, deleting parts as they are extracted

Most IT administrators are familiar with the process of extracting a multipart RAR file, which is a large file that has been split into multiple parts, usually for the purpose of making it easier to transfer over the Internet. The extraction process involves combining all the parts into a single, larger file, and then deleting the parts that were used to create it.

However, this process can be somewhat tricky, especially if the parts are scattered over multiple locations. In this article, we'll discuss how to extract a multipart RAR file, as well as how to delete the parts after they have been combined.

First, you'll need to locate all the parts of the multipart RAR file. This can usually be done by searching for the file name or by looking for files with an extension of .rar. Once you've located all the parts, you'll need to move them to the same directory.

Once all the parts are in the same directory, you'll need to use a program called WinRAR to combine them into a single, larger file. To do this, you'll first need to launch WinRAR and then select the \Combine\ option. This will open a window that will allow you to select all the parts that you wish to combine. After selecting the parts, simply click \OK\ and the program will combine them into a single file.

Once the multipart RAR file has been combined, you will then need to delete the parts that were used to create it. To do this, you'll need to open the folder containing the parts and select the \Delete\ option. This will delete all the parts that were used to combine the multipart RAR file.

In summary, extracting a multipart RAR file involves locating all the parts and then combining them into a single file using WinRAR. Once the file has been combined, you'll then need to delete the parts that were used to create it. Knowing how to extract and delete multipart RAR files can be a useful skill for any IT administrator.
