Specs: Windows XP sp2, 2.4 /ram 1.3g
Hi everyone. this is what I have been doing. I have downloaded a trial of WINRAR. I created by target folder first c/program files/new program. I have a folder with 7 winrar files to be extracted. I click on all the winrar files and right click and hit extract to. I choose the new folder i created. It seems to extract. problem is when i go to the new folder its empty. I try it again and asks if i want to over rights 'existing files'?? i choose yes but again the folder remains empty.

I don't think I am going blind. please help.

Dunno. Try F5 key just incase it didn't reload.

I'd use 7-zip or portable 7-zip.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

... hi "crisrg1"

... are these 7 rar files a series of 7 parts of one main rar file?

... ie a download of 7 increment files to make 1 file.

... what ever the case may be "drag and drop" is a good method

... stick your mouse cursur onto selected rar file ie "part1.rar" or "r00," or single one of "rar" file hold in right click mouse button drag the file into selected folder [you should know how to shrink folder window size http://www.yoingco.com/how_to_resiz...
... and just release the "rar" file option " extract here"

thanks for comments, I ended up extracting to same location and then installing program where I wanted it. Interesting on my laptop the one file bacame an ISO file which i could then mount but on the desktop, which is a bit older the icon remained as WINRAR. its only when to winrar properties that i found it was a iso file, so that through me a bit,

thanks all for replies, great site as always
