    Hi,

    The Cyclic Redundency Check test is one which unzipping software tries to measure the correctness of the file to be extracted.

    You can try the following method to solve the issue, though the success depends on the severity of the damage.

    Click Start > All Programs > WinRar > File > Open > Select file to be extracted > Extract to > Check the box “Keep Broken Files” > Close the window if found anything.

    Thanks.

    Remove CRC problem in following steps :-
    1. Open the .rar file(s) you would like to extract.
    2. Click on "Extract to"
    3. In the miscellaneous options, check "Keep Broken Files".


    Why does this happen?
    Although I'm not 100% sure about this, I believe that this has something to do with faulty memory.
    Large files such as multi-volume .rar files use alot of memory, or if running at the wrong voltages, can be unstable and perform errors.
    These errors are reported in Winrar during extraction but don't actually affect the extraction process.
    So for anyone who's going crazy from downloading and re-downloading "Corrupted Volumes" when the uploader claims that they are working fine, then save yourself the trouble and use this solution to save yourself some bandwidth, time, and grief.
