Autopar and split files

Postby dane » Fri Mar 23, 2018 7:13 pm

Hi - I'm using 64 bit Newsbin - 6.80RC3 - Build 5035 on a windows 10 machine. The command 'automatically unrar complete files' on the autopar options menu works fine for rar files - if I uncheck this option, it downloads all the rar files but does not unrar them. If I download the parts of a file which has been split - e.g. file.01
file.02
file.03
etc.
the files are combined and decoded and the original file is created whether this option is checked or not checked. Is there any way to keep these files from decoding the split file. If I can enter them into winrar manually, I can be sure there are no dangerous files in the set.

Thanks,
DaDane

They're not being unrared, they're being repaired into a single file. You'd have to disable autopar if you don't want Newsbin to combine them back into a single file. Typically these aren't rar files but naked files like MKV's so there's no danger in letting them get repaired into a single file.

As for your manual unraring, you know it doesn't matter if you unrar a virus or trojan as long as you don't run it.
