How to extract file.part1.rar, file.part2.rar, ... properly?

Hello,
I have some file.part1.rar, file.part2.rar, etc. When I extract these with Ark I get a folder for each part file, but actually it should be just one folder with all files merged.
So is there an option in Ark I missed? Or are there other utilities available (in KDE / linux) to do this?

a guess:
Code: Select all
 unrar x file.part1rar file.part2.rar


you could try other apps like peazip, xarchiver, file-roller

what happens if in dolphin you hight all 3 and click extract (probably use ark but ....)


OpenSuse Leap 42.1 x64, Plasma 5.x

OK, I found the clue is actually to NOT specify each part. So:
unrar x file.part1rar file.part2.rar file.part3.rar is WRONG (and doesn't work in unrar in ARK you get all the content 3x times....)
CORRECT:
unrar x file.part1rar or with dolphin/ark
select only file.part1.rar and choose extract.

HTH also others.

Is Ark behaving correctly here, or is there a bug in the extraction of data?
To my knowledge, automatically accessing the other parts of a multi-part archive is expected behaviour from an archiver application.

Well, code wise I think it is behaving correctly. However there is no sane / "stupidity" check.

Apparently. I didn't know this and when I looked around for my problem it doesn't seem I'm alone.

While i'm not sure how practical it is to implement, you might want to ask the Ark developers whether they would consider adding a feature to prevent multiple extraction when the various parts of a multi-part archive are passed to Ark.

To unzip multiple Zip files without drag and drop:

    From an open folder window, highlight the WinZip files you want to Extract.
    Right click in the highlighted area.
    Choose WinZip Extract to ...
    Enter the destination folder.

This is a critical situation. Especially rar files like with file.xxxz.rar and they will be continued with the same series.
You can't just download one file and unzip it.
You need to download all the files and unzip then only the content inside will work otherwise there will be nothing in the rar file if you download only one or 2 parts.

Let Me explain it Clearly.
I want to complete a game and I need the level 65 details. So for that, I need to download all the files of the unblocked game and then extract them.
Then only this will work otherwise it won't work at all.
