How to reconvert files to folders in XP
Some of my folders (containing mp3 files) were converted in rar files after i downloaded a zip archiver program (hamster) on my pc and i'm unable to go inside the folders to review and playback the files. Since those are originally folders (and no files) it is not a solution just to change the name extension of this container file. The only solution i can imagine is reconvert the big file to folder but i dont't know how...

rar is an archive format. The files are still there but all combined and compressed into a single rar file.

You need to use the same zip archiver that archived them to un-archive them back in to individual files. Just changing the extension on a folder or file does nothing to the file.
