Keep extracting as more parts become available

  • Hello,

    I’ve been looking for ages for a unrar-utility that will continue extracting the archive even if a part is missing at that time. The reason for this is that I regularly download movies from usenet, which are always in spanned rar-archives.

    The idea is that I begin downloading a movie, once the first rar is dl’d, I immediately begin extracting it, so that an incomplete .avi appears, which can then be played without problems with VLC media player. Now it would be perfect if PowerArchiver would detect when a new part of the archive is available, and immediately continue extracting it in the background.

    It seems to me a relatively simple feature to implement, and I would be really grateful if it could be done.
