    Hi, I recently downloaded a rar archive which is corrupt, as I can view the contents but not extract them. Is there any way to get anything out of it or will I have to download it over again?

    I wouldn't spend too much time on something which appears to be corrupt. if it's accessible to download again I'd just go ahead and do that.

    You'll have to download it again. If the same thing happens, try using 7Zip to open and extract from the archive.
