    I recently downloaded a RAR file (dont wanna mention what) of 400 MB, over Limewire. Needless to say, it took a while. Today is opened it in WinRAR, and this message appeared: RAR archive is either damaged of of an unknown format. I tried to repair, and it only spit out that there were file '???' header is corrupt twice, and then said no errors fixed. I tried opening again, it still showed the damaged message. I downloaded WinACE, as much as i hate it, and it said basically the same. I tried changing the file extension to zip and ace, and it still spit out the same message again. PLEASE i REALLY need help with fixing this archive so that i can extract the files. Ne1 here no how i can do that?

    I've never seen that exact message when using winRAR, but my guess would be the file is corrupt or incomplete.
