Stream Files from Archives that Are Made of Multiple Smaller Parts While They Are Not Complete yet Using This Simple and Straightforward App
A multipart RAR file refers to a standard archive that is split into multiple parts due to various reasons, such as so you can send it via an email client where you have a size limit to the attachments. More often than not, if you only have one of the parts, you cannot put the archive together and extract the content successfully.
RAR Streamer is a lightweight piece of software that enables you to extract the files from incomplete multipart archives and hence, you can view and manage the content downloaded so far. It is important to note that the program creates partially valid files and extracts until it finds a missing part, a feature that can come in handy for movies comprised of several archived parts.
Simply add the archive and specify the location of the extraction
The installation is a swift and uneventful operation that does not require any special attention on your part. Unfortunately, the app does not create a shortcut on the desktop, so you need to access it from the installation directory. Then again this is just a minor inconvenience and may not even be a problem for users who want to keep their enhanced desktop clean and uncluttered.
Functionality-wise, the program is as simple to use as it looks. To be more precise, once you open the app, it prompts you to add a part of the archive that you are processing. Afterwards, you need to specify the output location and the extraction occurs right away.
A straightforward tool for incomplete multipart archives
It is important to note that you need all the parts in order to extract and view the full content stored in the archive. What the tool does is to provide you a simpler way to grab the files and data, as you only need to add one of the parts in order to extract the files and folders included. For instance, you can
start watching the movie once you have the first part, and the movie gets ‘patched’ on the fly as more parts emerge.
In the eventuality that you are working with multiple archives that are sent to you as smaller parts for various reasons, then RAR Streamer provides you with a quick way to process them and view the content.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used RAR Streamer and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
