In winrar, under the tools menu, there is a repair option.

Large files sometimes fail to download completely because of problems at one end or the other.

The most regular problem though is that you don't have permission to download so many Mgs.

its says - the archive is either in unknown format or damaged. think i will just delete file. think that it is damaged. cheers anyhow
