How to open rar files with parts

I upload everything packed as rar files as it saves having to individually pack up and upload each song. Before you complain saying that you can't open it, or two parts of the download aren't working, read this :p

1. Download all the parts of the archive - the files are split up so one part by itself will not work

2. Make sure you have a program such as 7Zip or WinRar to open the file (7Zip is free)

3. Extract or open the file, usually right clicking on part 1 will give an extract option

4. If there is an error such as 'unexpected end of archive', check the file size of the part to make sure the download didn't finish early, re-download it if it looks like it did

Feel free to ask about any other problems, I think this covers most things though :)
