downloaded files won't extract!

Q: downloaded files won't extract!

I am downloading stuff but after downloading I go to extract and I get an error message that there are "no files to extract". I am using the Windows XP Extraction Wizard, so I went online and downloaded another zip program but I can't even install it because the computer tells me that the file is corrupted, the same thing that I am told when I double-click on all the downloaded files (doubleclick = file corrupted, rightclick to extract = no files to extract).

What do I do, whats going on?

I know it's the UAC that's restricting me from doing so. Am using 7-zip, and the only way I've found for moving files to program files, is by extracting them on my desktop, then move it over to the folder inside program files. What am looking for, is a way of extracting them to the program files folder right away?

Edit: Am mostly using the right click menu. Right click-> 7-Zip -> Extract and so forth...

Hey now heres a dilemma for you.

I have just bought a dvd burner and was looking forward to getting some dvds from the newsgroups. But to my dismay i couldnt extract the multiple rar files from the archieve because it was slightly bigger than 4gb ie i have FAT32 system. I investigated the NTFS option but couldnt do it because i have windows pre installed on a time machine and if i change the system i cant reload windows from the hidden parts of my hdd because the specialised disc will only work in FAT32 knowing to the need of it to support NTFS systems time didnt want to because it kepts the technical support about it down. There are programs about for the xbox to extract iso's from the rar files without extracting the rar files. Then to transfer to the hdd of the xbox in one step. I was wondering does anyone know of any program that will let me extract the contents of an image/iso from rar files. I know its possible because i know of two programs for xbox iso's Called Suxx 1.02 and Craxtion 4. I would appreciated anyyy help given here. Its also difficult to explain the extract iso from rar files in a search engine.... very difficult. Or something that will let me extract the contents of a rar without getting the 4gb limit error.

I'm running windows 7, on a Dell Optiplex 755. It's been quite some time since my last reformat, but I'd like to avoid doing that if possible. What happens when I try to download or extract the file is the process completes, but the file(s) immediately disapear(s). The odd thing about it is I'm able to create files myself with other programs, and I can download through Chrone just fine. I would just use chrome, but It's a work computer and We're supposed to use IE. Being able to extract .zip files would also be nice. Has anyone else heard of/seen this issue? Let me know if you need any more information.

During an upgrade from XP to Windows 7 Ultimate I used Easy Transfer.
Towrads the end of the transfer back to the computer from an external disk, the transfer crashed.
I was able to complete the upgrade but a few files are missing.

Is there a way to look into the MIG files, locate certain files and extract them?

A:I can not extract files

Not knowing what type of file you are trying to extract from, nor the OS you are using, it gets hard to understand exactly what it is you are trying to do. But if you are using either Vista or Win7 then the extracting (uncompressing) and compressing function is built into the OS.

You might want to remove the extraction program you installed (7-zip, or winrar, or whatever) and then reset the file associations for the .zip file type and see what then happens.

I can no longer extract files that I download off the internet.

.exe, .zip, .rar, you name it, it will not extract.

I downloaded an nvidia driver update, and in the middle of the extraction it said that my file is corrupt. Same for any zip or rar files. (I tried using winrar, 7zip, WinMount3, Windows Explorer)

I ran chkdsk and Windows Memory Diagnostic and it seems like there are no problems.

I wonder if it has anything to do with my RAID5 configuration. I had to rebuild a harddrive twice since I installed 7100, both due to Windows crashing unexpectedly. I will probably be moving to a RAID1 config when I install RTM though, as I can no longer stand 40 hour rebuilds.

If anyone has any suggestions as to what else I can check, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone,

a friend gave me a copy of some music software but it is really complicated for me to install it as i am very IT phobic. I have no clue what to do and know one to help me ha.

He gave me 2 discs, the first one containing one file which is roughly around 4GB in size and is a .001 file. my computer doesnt recognise it. and the second one with another file which is 1GB and is a .002 file? and also a folder containing 7-zip in the second disc.

He told me briefly what to do and i have searched the internet for help but no use. He said..

"Using 7-zip extract the .001 file and once that is it done it will ask for .002 or (disc 2) to be extracted. Once that is done you will be left with a big file, .iso file? extract that, and you will be left with setup.exe and then you just install it normally.

( I might be mistaken on some parts because i didnt write down what he said, he lives across the country and i dont have his number )

These are the steps i took below and what happened.


Disk 1: reason5.001

Disk 2: reason5.002

STEP 1: extracting reason5.001 and it never asked for .002 but still got to 100% ??

STEP 2: extracted 3 new files to a new folder i created on desktop. They were..(MSINFO) (Reason5.iso) (R5Keygen)

Up until recently, i have had no problems, but over the last week, i have been unable to extract rar files with Winrar. No matter what the file, it gives me a heap of crc file corrupt errors. When i download the same files on another computer, no error. I can choose to keep broken files and ignore all error messages and the files are fine, but I shouldn't have to do this. Can anyone help. I've tried several other unziping programs, all with the same result. i've checked for updated bios and tried re installing Winrar.

WinRAR has a repair option -- have you tried that? Also, their is supposed to be an option to ignore corrupt files during the extract operation. If you can set that, you might be lucky and have only one file corrupted in the archive and be able to extract the others.

There are plenty of offers of apps online that claim to repair RAR files, but I've not used any of them, so can't advise you on which ones to use.

I opened the file using winrar, and a message was shown that a certain file has "corrupt header".

Now the file/files are really important, and there are no second copies. How do I extract all the files including the corrupt ones?

A:How do i extract my product key from windows.old files

The only 'backup' of your Key is on your COA sticker on the machine's case (or inside the battery compartment), or inside the packaging that came with your disks, if it was retail.

It should be possible to pull the Key from the Windows.old folder - using the ProduKey tool in 'remote' mode...
The command format is
Produkey.exe /windir [Windows Directory]

where [Windows Directory] is the path to the Windows folder in your Windows.old folder.

My ST3500418AS 500GB died and took my Windows 7 with it, so I had to do a fresh install to another hard disk.
Unfortunately, Backup and Restore cannot see the backup location from my previous install, so I can't get my files back that way.

I presume that the VHD file I see in the backup folder is the system image of the previous install.

Is there any way I can extract my files from this VHD using some software package, or even convert it to another format such as ISO and extract my files that way?

There's a lot of great pics and stuff there that I don't even remember where I got it from, so I'm pretty desperate to get it all back.

Okay...where to start...

Firstly, I have been able to extract zip files before now. I have also downloaded files from this provider without any trouble in the past. I'm using Windows XP.

In this case, I have purchased two music downloads. They are the artist's side project, so he uploaded the zip folders to mediafire. I downloaded the folders, and am able to open them and view the files inside. When I tried to extract the files, the wizard asked me for a password. I e-mailed the artist, who said that the files were not password protected. He wasn't sure what the problem was, but recommended that I try WinZip. When I try to extract the files, WinZip gives me the following message:

The following invalid folder name was encountered in the archive: ""DIES "Talons"\""
This folder and any files in it will not appear in the main WinZip window, but you may still be able to extract it by choosing ""All files"" in the Extract dialog. For more information, click on Help or press F1.

It will give this message for every subfolder and file within the main zip folder. I looked through the help contents and at the online help without any success. I re-dowloaded the folders, but nothing changed.

I am having trouble extracting teco444.001 type files.

I have both WinRAR 5.01 and 7-Zip installed but neither one extracts this type file.

I need help

Thank you

A:Extract teco444.001 type files

Hello huffman. I am assuming you ave a file named teco444 that has an extension of .001? if so, this is usually just part one of a multipart file. You would normally also have a teco444.002, and a teco444.003, etc. When you have all parts in the same directory, clicking to extract the .001 file would then extract the complete file from all the present parts. Sometimes it is possible to extract just a portion. if for example the parts all contained a number of jpgs, then you might be able to extract just the .001 and get whatever images are in just that part, but not the full archive.

This youtube video explains with Winrar

Without being nosy, what kind of files are these, and is it possible you are not getting all parts?

For those who prefer a GUI, this is also doable in recent versions of Disk Copy. When creating or converting the disk image, specify "CD/DVD Master" as the output format.

Open Disk Utility, convert the DMG file to a CD/DVD Master (it'll have the extention .cdr), change the extension to .iso, transfer it over to your PC and burn it with whatever software you have.

Well, five years after this was brought up here and help is still needed on this exact same crappy subject.A week ago I put Windows 7 on my wife's XP machine. I stupidly used the XP SP3 Files and Settings Transfer Wizard (yeah, I know).So to cut a long story short, I've tried everything in this thread several times as well as pretty much everything else I can find. The closest I've come to a successful end to this nonsense is by running Fastconv which extracts USMT2.UNC into some 30 folders in a Temp Folder then stops and crashes after extracting Transdb.datI know this is pretty much a replica another post here but I couldn't find a straight solution to that. I did just run a FileImgWiz Verify scan of the USMC2.UNC folder and got this backwhich I assume means that my files are problem free (doesn't it?)So as I can't figure out why everything else might have failed, is there a definitive answer as to how I can work with the Temp and Transdb.dat folders & files please?Thanks in advance.

Since Google recently acquired Meebo, Meebo is shutting down their messenger program. Since I have four years worth of chat logs I wish to keep, I downloaded them in a zipped format to my computer. However, when I try to extract them, I get the message "Windows has blocked access to these files to protect your computer." I tried doing what the help file told me to do to unblock (go to "Properties", and click "Unblock") but even after doing that I keep getting the same message. A friend of mine suggested uninstalling Windows Defender, but I was wondering if there was a less drastic measure to take that would still work.

A:Security refuses to allow me to extract chat log files

FWIW: Uninstalling Windows Defender is hardly a "drastic measure" since its value has been questionable for several years.I would try that as a cure for your problems...and replace WD with a program like SUPERAntiSpyware Free - . what I see...all it takes is to use a 3d-party program (Winzip, 7-Zip, et alia) to open the file and extract.

I recently was forced to perform a complete system wipe and a reinstall of Windows XP Professional. I copied my DBX files to a DVD-ROM with all my other data, believing they would be available following the reinstall, as in previous undertakings.

However, after copying my DBX folders back to the hard drive, I am unable to drop them into OE and retrieve the messages. I have employed several DBX recovery programs, including Macallan Outlook Express Extraction, DBXtract, DBXConv and several others.

A strange thing happens when I try and use these programs to retrieve the messages or convert the folders' contents into .emls or any other formats: the programs seem to run without any error messages, yet nothing happens. Destination folders remain empty. It's like the DBX files are themselves empty, yet they are the correct file sizes from when I saved them.

So they can't be empty, right?

(I was hoping to attach one of the .dbx files in question - a small one - to this post to see if perhaps any expert here has a solution that has escaped me, but these file types are not permitted as attachments.)

A:Unable to extract messages from stored DBX files

It would appear the files were never successfully burned from the original drive, only empty placeholders of the equivalent size.

Depending on how bad it is it may not be possible, but if it's a few bad sectors you may be able to connect it into an external USB dock or external USB hard drive enclosure, or even connect it internally to a desktop PC, and you may be able to simply copy the files off it.

My pc is about 2 years old and i have big problem in that my pc has been restored back to factory settings with no back up completed.Incedently the problem started imeaditley after i installed a tom tom sat nav device to my pc. My machine wouldnt go in to bios or reboot in safe mode or any other of the 5 options we have tried on about 100 ocasions, but it just wouldnt start and go in to windows. So we pressed f10 on start up and began system restore which included a backup of files again the machine wouldnt reboot. Now some how or another i went in to system restore again and chose the wrong option and basically reverted right back to factory settings. Now this has been done and i know it was a stupid thing to do and also a lot of my files have not been backed up to discs. Since learnt today to get myself an external hard drive will do as soon as the shops are open.

Can some expert out there tell me 1 if i can extract theses files back on to my pc and 2 if i can, how do i complete this task?

And now, when BD is relatively cheaper than the DVD I'm going to copy all my old albums (some have over 15 years) and rewrite on BD already uncompressed, so my program WhereIsIt? will be able to generate thumbnails of all these files. And the first part is easy, I copied all of those hundreds of CDs and DVDs on my hard drive, but how to extract all the files at the same time preserving the directory structure?

For Mac is a program Unarchiver which I used until recently, who can do it, but I can not find its counterpart on Windows. I can search all the archives on the disk and just open them, and they will unpack into place.
Maybe one of you can help me find a easy and a similar solution to accomplish this task on my Windows 7 PC? I've tried with Winrar Rarsoft, but there is no option to extract files to the original path. All I can do is to select each batch of files in a subdirectory and manually select "Extract Here", but I have millions of catalogs, many automatically generated by programs. After 2 hours of manual unpacking, I made the first mistake and I had to copy all the data from CD again, because I need to have all my data intact.


A:How to extract files _with_ keeping directory structure?

Where the files compressed with a folder structure? Otherwise I'm confused...I've never had to explicitly tell WinRAR or 7zip to preserve the folder structure they just did it...Tho...I just use the right click feature on the actual compressed file and tell it to "Extract here" type deal...I don't open it and manually select files.

Hello, I'm having some problems with Winrar.
I'm using the command line to compress files into a rar, but then when I try to use the command line to decompress the same files I get a "No files to extract" error.

None of the rars is empty and the files can actually be extracted using the windows GUI, the problem is with the command line.

I'm using the following command to compress the files (with different paths):

"C:\Program Files\WinRAR\winrar.exe" a -v4400m -m5 -ag -r -ac -ao -to10m -IBCK C:\Backups\DocumentsBackup C:\Documents\*.*
And then I use this command to extract (again with different paths):

"C:\Program Files\WinRAR\winrar.exe" x -r -IBCK C:\Backups\DocumentsBackupYYYYMMDDhhmmss.rar C:\Temp
I already tried downloading the latest version of winrar but it didn't solve my problem.
I'm using Windows Server 2003 BTW.

Thanks in advance for your help.

A:Winrar problems - can't extract files via command line.

Nevermind, I found the problem.
The correct syntax for the extract command would be the following:

"C:\Program Files\WinRAR\winrar.exe" x -IBCK C:\Backups\DocumentsBackupYYYYMMDDhhmmss.rar *.* C:\Temp

okay, I have a file in microsoft excel. I have a column in there for a
description. However, my resource of all the descriptions are in html files.

All that is in the file is the description., I also need to be able to match up either the name of the html file or one
of the numbers in the html file to a catalog number in excel so that the
right description gets put on the same line as the item. The title of the
html file is the same as the item # inside the html file. Is there anyway to
pull the text out of the html files, with still keeping the model # or
whatever in excel?

(i.e. file number is 12345, and I have a column in excel with the same number 12345. I would like to be able to match the neumbers up so they would be in different columns but on the same line.

I will send anyone the files, if they want to take as look at the files, etc... Please let me know if you understand what I am
talking about. I know there may be othe rprogs out there, or even excel . I
kjnow its pretty powerful.

the column I want the description to go into would either be column F or G.

I would ike it if the # in the column for images could be matched up to the number of the file, or # inside of file, to column F or G. SO I do not have to sort all of these 1 by 1.
But be able to paste them all in the oprder of that #.

Also, if this is possible, to be able to take as many of ther html files at
one time, SO I do not have to do all of them 1 by 1. I have around 22,000
products I have to do this... Read more

Hello, Please help me. I have Windows 2000 Professional. I'm pretty new to all this as I have only had a computer for about a week. I got some adware threats detected by Norton Antivirus 2004 and have done a lot of reading up and I am now tring to delete them.

One of the removal instructions provided by Norton promps me to delete a file in C:\Winnt\Downloaded Program Files but when I go to view this folder it looks like there are no files inside. Now, I know there are files in there as Norton Antivirus has picked up one in there and when I view the proporties for that folder it states there are 12 files inside but when I view the folder with Windows Explorer it appears empty!

I've gone into folder option and changed the settings so it shows hidden files and hidden system files yet this still doesn't let me view the files in this folder. How can I delete this file if I am unable to view it?

If anyone can point me to a turorial that explains this or explain it to me I would really appreciate this.

Please help a n00b.

Cheers, Luke.

A:Unable to view files in C:\Winnt\Downloaded Program Files

I'm assuming you have done this to Show hidden files and folders:
Go to Control Panel/Folder Options/View and select "Show hidden files and folders"

Also,place a check in "Display the contents of system folders"
And,uncheck "Hide protected operating system files(Recommended)"

If the above doesn't work try this:
Create the REG_DWORD ShowSuperHidden (if it doesn't already exist) Set the value to 1, click OK, and close the Registry editor

Whats going on? Everything time I try to extract the RAR to a folder in "Program Files" it says Access Denied and fails to copy...

A:Trying to Extract files to "Program Files" says Access Denied.

As a standard user you don't have access to that folder. You must the RAR extractor as an adminstrator.

When you go to start the RAR extraction, right click on it and select "Run as administrator"
