I almost(98%) downloaded a file.7z which contains multiple files.
The missing part is in the middle of file.7z.
So I only get 50% of all contained files when extracted with 7zip.
How can I extract it as far as possible?

You can try using WinRar and 7-zip to decompress the file and see which gets further. If the corruption is in the middle of the file it's not likely you'll get more than what you already have - you're probably far better off re-downloading the file.
