If you have downloaded movies, in RAR Archives that have been split up into more than one parts using a Winrar you will know how frustrating it can be coz the movie may be one you already own or it may even be the wrong one. And to preview it you need to download all the parts.
Heres a method to preview the movie by downloading only the first part.
To preview .mpg .wmv .avi .mp3 files -
Things you need -
1. Winrar Archiver
2. Password for the RAR Archive, if it is password protected
3. A Media Player like Winamp, WMP..............

And lets say you have downloaded claudia_ferrari_shq.part1.rar and want to preview the move inside it. (Note for this to work you must download the first part. It doesnt matter if you download any number of parts as long as they are in order, ie. dont download the last part first).
Now open the first part with Winrar. And click on Extract To button.
Now comes the important part DONT FORGRET TO CHECK THE Keep broken files BOX AS SHOWN IN PICTURE
You can either enter a custom address to save the clip in or you can continue with the default address, like I did. Click Extract.

If you downloaded more than one archive (in this case I have downloaded 3 parts - claudia_ferrari_shq.part1.rar, claudia_ferrari_shq.part2.rar, claudia_ferrari_shq.part3.rar) you will get the following message -
Click Process All files in all volumes from the current, to extract files from all the downloaded parts. After this you will be able to see the extraction screen -
