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.
