    Winrar 3.2 always puts everything into a temporary directory before it copies the files to the destination I choose. This is really annoying for large files becaues it takes twice as long to open them. Is there any way to make it put the files directly into the destination folder?

    It does this on purpose, no point in copying over an file if its broken.

    ARRRRGH!!! Winrar is ridiculous. I tried that, and yes, the temp files do appear in the current folder and it just copies the files. I'm going to see if Power Archiver or Winace can be a solution.
