If you have downloaded an archive and discovered CRC error while opening RAR file, then some bytes of information were missed. WinRAR can check the checksum to notify about missing parts of your archive.

1) This error can be caused by a file downloading interruption. So, you should try to download this archive again.

2) If it didn't help you, you could right-click on your corrupted archive and select Extract files. Then find the Miscellaneous section in the General tab. And check Keep broken files option.

3) You can use WinRAR repairing function, as the alternative method. Open the WinRAR manager and right-click on your archive. Then select Repair archive option, choose a folder and press OK. However, this method doesn't work if your archive file hasn't recovery record.

Also, you can use various recovering tools as RAR Recovery Toolbox.
