.RAR file only extracts to 4%

I have a large .rar file (400mb) which I'm trying to extract with WINRAR. It is password protected.

I put in the absolute correct password, then the file extracts to 4% and it just says "CRC Failed in the encrypted file. Wrong Password?".

I have been assured that the password is correct. Could there be some other problem which I'm not aware of?

I've tried to extract the file with other software, but I also get the message "bad password".

Thank you in advance.

CRC (cyclic redundancy check) tests, whether the file has a correct checksum and therefore has been transfered without errors.

If you get such error, the file has either not been transfered correctly, or has not been compressed correctly, so that the source rar file is already corrupt.

A redownload of the file may help, but if the source already has this error, there is no chance, to extract the whole file.

My guess is you got scammed by some torrent download.
