    Once we get the links how exactly do you extract the files. I have
    RAR extract frog but every file I attempt to extract I get the following:
    file archive corrupt or
    file archive incomplete or
    password needed
    What does this mean and how do I rectify?
    I also have a Mirror Account but cant upload.
    Opened a zippy account but still cannot get the files extracted

    Help I am a Novice

    I have both mac and windows. I've also always used winrar. I don't think there is a better tool out there and it seems to be free forever.

    I use Unarchiver of the mac and have never had any problems. Winrar on windows works great too.

    I use 7zip. It's free and I like it a lot.

    If you're downloading a large file that has been divided up into parts, you need to highlight all the part and extract together , or you won't get all of it. Other times when a file won't unzip it's because it needs a password. Most sharing forums use the forum name as default. I don't know about here yet. Other times the file may have become corrupted during the download process, and downloading it again will help. If none of these issues solve the problem, then likely the uploaded file was already corrupted or missing parts, which happens sometimes.
