RAR is a file compression technique used to compress multiple files in a single file; it provides many features like compression, splitting, encryption, password protection etc. Therefore computer users often use them for different purposes as mentioned below:

  • Files of large size can be compressed or splitted into smaller parts so that they can be easily be transmitted over internet. This in turn reduces the transmission time
  • Confidential files can be protected by assigning password to ensure data security
  • Backup data can be stored in compressed form to save disk space

However, corruption or damage to RAR file can occur due to several reasons such as CRC error, virus infection, file header corruption, partial download, application failure, transmission error etc and one of the other important reasons for RAR file corruption is because of third party recovery tool.

How RAR file gets corrupt due to a recovery tool?

When you use a third party recovery tool for recovering you’re deleted RAR file from a storage drive, it will scan for the file signature and then recover the file body sector-by-sector which is present after the file signature. But if the RAR file is fragmented, then the recovery tool will recover only that part of the file body which is present in continuation in the memory space. Then the recovered RAR file will become damaged and will not open. Another scenario could be, if the file header is present but the file body is overwritten with some other data or file. Then the recovery software will recover it as a file but you may not be able to access it.
