I Lost A RAR File. Is There Any Way To Restore It?

Sometimes when we transfer file data on the network, we need to compress the files to send or transfer them because of some restrictions. These compressed files are often small in size and are called compressed files or package files. The loss of this kind of files is also a common problem.

“I am a primary school teacher. I have written some children’s songs and short stories for the children these two days. I need to compress them for work and send them to other teachers several days later. But when I viewed them today, I found that the compressed file is missing. I can't find it. Is there a way to recover it? By the way, the file is in RAR format."


RAR is a private fileRAR is a private file format for file compression and archiving. It is used for data compression and archive packaging. That is to say, the original file data is compressed and saved as RAR file with suffix. Its main advantage is that the file compression target is split into multiple files, and it is easy to extract the source file from such a split compressed file.

Compared with ZiP which support many formats but is not popular, RAR supports many formats and is very popular. Another point is that ZIP can only be compressed into ZIP format and cannot be decompressed into RAR format, and RAR not only has its own format and it can also be compressed into ZIP format and decompressed in ZIP format.

If you encounter the same situation as Ms. Serena says above, please continue reading. And then your problem must be solved.

Restore your RAR file by UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free

Let UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free show you how it can help you solve the trouble by finding the missing RAR file for you through the following steps.

Step 1: Enter the software to choose the format of the lost data

In the first step, please open the UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free. The format selection interface of the wizard data appears in front of you.

There are two lines in the interface that represent the file format icons. All you need to do is to select the file in compressed format. This format is not listed separately. Please check the last icon from the left of the first line that represents other formats.

When the check is done, a small circle with a check mark will appear in the lower right corner of the icon. At this time, you can click the “Next” button on the right, as shown below.

Step 2: Select the disk where the file is originally located.

What appears in front of you is the interface for selecting the disk. All you need to do is to select the disk where your lost RAR file was originally located.

Originally your file is stored on the D drive, then please select the D drive. After selecting, in the right side of the line of name a small circle with a check mark will appear. This time you can click on the Scan button at the top right to scan your D drive, as shown below.

File retrieval: scan the disk

Scanning takes a certain amount of time. The length of time is determined by the files stored on your D drive. The more complex file type and the larger file size will take the longer scanning time, as shown below.

Under normal circumstances, if in your disk memory there are 500MB compressed files, it only takes a few seconds to complete the scan. Please wait patiently.

Step 3: Select your lost RAR file for recovery

After the scan is completed, you can browse all the files on your D drive through the left side of the interface.

At this point you need to traverse the files and then find your missing RAR file and select it. Then click the "Restore" button in the upper right corner, as shown below.

If you don't find your RAR file after scanning, you don't have to worry about it. UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free provides two ways to scan. One is the fast scan that has just been performed. The advantage of this scan mode is that it is fast, but some deep files may not be scanned out.

In the case that the target file is not retrieved, the deep scan will help you retrieve the missing RAR file, but it takes a little longer. At this time, please click the yellow“deep scan” button on the upper of the interface to scan more deeply. Please wait patiently again, as shown below.

After the deep scan is completed, find your lost RAR file, select it and click the "Recover" button. Then your important compressed files will be returned to you intact, as shown below.(It is recommended when you scan the missing files, perform a fast scan before performing a deep scan.)

The above is the specific operating method of UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free for you to retrieve the lost RAR file. For beginners, the whole process is simple and easy. Even if you have never used the data recovery software before, through the guide in each interface you can also use it quickly to restore the files perfectly.
