The Newsgroup NZB Downloader
The RAR window can be opened via the Open RAR Decoder command
on the File Menu.
Purpose: SuperNZB will automatically open this window when it has finished downloading an
NZB that contains RAR and PAR files. You can also use this window to extract files from RAR archives
that you have downloaded with other programs.
In most cases, SuperNZB will do everything automatically, and all you will need to do
is close this window when it finishes extracting the files.
To manually extract files, click the Select RAR File button and choose a file.
You may also drag-and-drop a RAR file from your desktop onto this button to trigger it.
As the program processes the RAR archive segments, it will list them on the left side
of the window. On the right side, it will list the files it has pulled out of the
archive. There can be one, or many. Watch the status line at the bottom of the window
to see when it finished.
If you have PAR files, you should apply them first with the
This program cannot process archives that have passwords.
Inside the SuperNZB folder you will see a program called UnRar.exe on Windows, and unrar on the Mac.
SuperNZB will launch this program to do the heavy lifting. If you close SuperNZB in the middle of a
large RAR job, the unrar program will still be running and you may want to kill it off. You can do
that by using the Task Mananger on Windows, and the Activity Monitor on the Mac. If you are handy
at the command line, you can also use the unrar program from there.
