One of our employee did invalid backup copy. Usually all our data we pack into .rar archives. And at extracting this rar archive can't be opened. We need to extract data.

You may be able to repair the rar archive using Winrar. Normally when archiving a critical file one would add a recovery record to the archive.

I have to ask why was an employee making a back-up on what is presumably a work computer ?  Surely system backups are an IT responsibility and not something to be left to the whims of "one of your employees". Even if you don't have an IT department as such there must be somebody responsible for doing back-ups and if there isn't, there should be. System wide backups of data are too important to any company to be left to chance or whim.

 

In this day and age, companies which don't have their data adequately backed up go out of business in the event of fire, flood or other major disaster.
