The RAR file format is used to compress one or multiple files together, as well as split files up into multiple parts. This reduces the file size and makes it easier to store or transfer the files. Combining parts of RAR files back into a usable format requires the use of WinRAR or another such program.

  3. 3

    Open WinRAR or other compressed file manager.

  4. 4

    In the main program window, browse to locate the directory where all the RAR files are stored. Double-click on the directory to open it.
