Hi. So I had a password protected winrar file, it had 10 files and 1 folder in it and I would add to it by draging new stuff in when I needed to. I recently added to it and it was fine, but then I went into it today and 8 files where gone and the folder, leaving only two files. I could open one of the files fine, but the other said wrong password even tho the password was correct, it let me view 1 file but not the other.


The atchal RAR file size has gone down also so I'm thinking my other files have gone for ever, but thought Id see if anyone new why this happened so I can advoid it in future, and ideally get the other files back if its possibable.


Not sure what else I can tell you, the files in there didn't jump from 2 to 10 Id added maybe one or two at a time over a few months, and I think when I first created it it had 4 files and a folder so I have no idea.

Can't help you get your files back buddy, sorry


I can recommend TrueCrypt though, much more stable and secure way to safely encrypt your files.
