    I tried a Stuffit but it can't be repaired. Is there any other program which can repair file?

    BTW, same file can be repaired on windows with winrar.

    of course, it's my default unrar program, but it says CRC error.

    Compressed data pretty much looks like random data (otherwise the patters would be further compressible), so there are not really tools that can fix things. The best you can do is to uncompress it ignoring errors, and hope that it only messes up a segment of the archive.

    Were there any .par files that came with the rar files? Try MacPar.

    Hi,

    I can't ignore warnings. It says error and don't do anything.

    No, there is no par files, just rars.

    I am a little confused :confused:

    If the file can be (and has been) repaired on Windows with WinRar, then why do you need it repaired now?

    Could you possibly try the OS X commandline version of (win)RAR? It may have a 'repair' parameter that you could use.
