    So I have a 30-part RAR file as part of a collection I am trying to download, a few of the rar parts have files in them that are corrupted. Mostly large movie files. Is there anyway to recover it?

    Downloading a 30-part series takes a considerable amount of time, any way to check?

    While unpacking, winrar will tell you which parts are damaged. Note those down.
    Click on the damaged part inside of Winrar program.
    Then go to Tools >>> Repair archive in menu (or just Alt + R).
    It will repair archive by creating new repaired file and give it a different name.

    I would say about 95% of times it repaired files for me.
    But there's still chance that file in unrepairable state. Only way to beat this is to download a damaged part again.
