    Hi,

    If I put a .rar folder inside of a .rar folder that is inside of another .rar folder, would I have to extract each .rar folder one by one, or is there a way/tool to be able to extract a .rar file AND the .rar files inside of it quickly?

    If anyone can help me figure it out, I would appreciate it. I did some research already..

    One by one, however if you have a utility such as 7-zip it makes it easy to right click and extract.

    Like having your socks inside your socks inside your socks... peel one by one. Unless you have it all in an exe. form, where you can subtract it all in one line - but unless you know what you do, I wouldn't suggest. Nice and peacefully.

    I know this is an old thread, but I think it would be easier if files are placed in separate folders and then pack all the folders together in one RAR file.
