RAR extractor with 'keep broken files' option?

    At the moment I extract incomplete RAR archives with the freeware command
    line tool from Rarsoft, but that is quite a hassle.

    Does a Windows freeware exist to do this?

    Can you confirm that IZarc has the 'keep broken files' option?

    Files in a RAR archive that are incomplete because not all RAR parts are
    available.

    Shouldn't you download the same file(s) again from the Internet or
    source?
    You can repair a damaged compress file but you cannot repair a
    incomplete compress file.

    Perhaps I didn't use the right words. Rar archives often consist of
    different volumes (maybe that's the word I should have used instead of
    parts), part01.rar, part02.rar etc.

    Say you have the first 2 volumes of an archive that consists of 10.
    With Winrar it is possible to extract the available data in the 2
    volumes. This is very useful with multimedia files, it gives the chance
    to preview the file before you download the remaing volumes.

    IZArc cannot do that but 7-Zip can.
    Get 7-Zip from http://www.7-zip.org/.

    I've tried it and it works indeed.
    Thanks a lot for the tip!

    Sorry if this response is a little OT.
    I greatly prefer IZarc when compared with WinZip... however, IZarc did
    not and/or would not extract RAR files into usable format.
    Do not understand why that is... I use Win98 (first edition) OS.
    Anyone else ever noticed this situation?
    What is the proper method?

    Excuse me if this post out of line!

    Which version of IZArc you're using.
    I don't have problem of extract RAR files with IZArc 3.3.1.
    But someone said he/she is having RAR extraction problem with the latest
    version 3.4.
