I am just starting to get the hang of Ubuntu, so please bear with me.
I want to extract a RAR file of size 8GB. Now I have backed up the file on 2 DVDs after splitting the files in 40 pieces of 200MB each; first disc has 21 parts and second disc has the rest. When I start extraction, it extracts 21 parts, but after that Archive Manager throws an error
Cannot find the volume: archivename.part22.rar
I understand that the problem is Archive Manager is not showing a dialog to find the other files on the next disc. I can counter it by just copying the all parts from the disk in one directory before extracting, but copying 8GB of data every time I want to extract anything is very time consuming, takes a lot of space on my small hard drive, and I have many such archives.
Can anyone point me to some other program that can do the same? I googled but found nothing, nor any other solution. I am using Ubuntu 12.10
