Extract files from splitted archive


If all parts of splitted archive is present, then opening and extracting of archive is the same like archives that are non-splitted. On other hand, if you don't have all parts of archive, SmartRAR will ask you for missing parts (Rar only).

Missing volume window (Rar only)

If you are missing some parts of archive, some files will have left or right (or both) arrow icon next to file type icon. That means that in order to extract that files you will need previous or next part (or both) of archive. When extraction process comes to that files it will open missing volume window and ask you for destination of that volume. In textbox you will find the name of missing volume. You can press "Browse" button to find missing volume in your file system or press "Cancel" to stop extraction.

Note that you will not be able to extract file that is missing previous volume (left arrow icon next to file type icon), even with "keep broken files" option enabled. In order to extract that file you will need to open archive from prevoius volume, and then start extraction process.
