    In windows I used winrar, but what programs are good for the mac to open rar files with? specifically huge archive rar files (*.r00 - *.r34)??

    rar expander can handle .r00~.r[number] files.
    stuffit doesn't work for me in this case

    UnRAR X is what I use, but it's very very basic. I might have to try some of the other apps suggested here.

    I think Stuffit Expander /can/ handle ".r00" etc. files, but it's slow and the progress bar doesn't show actual progress, you just kind have to wait a while.

    I've used UnRarX on RARs that Stuffit couldn't handle and it always works (plus shows you what it's doing).
