  • Use WinRAR and browse to where the archive is located and use the repair option directly on the archive.
  • Folder to put the repaired archive: Your Desktop is recommended
  • Archive type: Treat the corrupt archive as RAR
  • Go onto your desktop (Or where you put the repaired archive)

Why does it get blocked after like 100 attempts?
