Question Anyone know how to change from new rar to old rar extensions?

sponsored links

[B]How can I switch to the old extension DOS based naming scheme (*.exe,*.r00 to *.r99) within Windows?[/B] Iím using Winrar v3.20 and Iíam having some trouble trying to archive some files. I wish to upload some files to my Yahoo Briefcase account for safekeeping, (if you are a yahoo briefcase user, you will know that you can only upload files of a certain size in one go) and I do not wish to use the new Winrar sfx file extensionÖ For Example.

[B]Nero Burning.part1.exe
Nero Burning.part2.rar
Nero Burning.part3.rar
Nero Burning.part3.rar


Nero Burning.exe
Nero Burning.r00
Nero Burning.r01
Nero Burning.r02[/B]

Iíve been to Winrar Knowledge Base site and Iíve contacted Winrar them selves (Being one of the few people in this world who owns legitimate copy of Winrar!) and the answer that I got back, frankly, was as clear as mud.

In Winrar 3.20 it is a little different from most versions of Winrar, go to...

Start / Programs / Winrar / Options / Settings / Viewer / Use DOS encoding (Tickbox).
