I have a password rar file that is 73.2MB size, but when I enter the password and open it, the rar file is empty, no content. How is it possible?

What can I do to see the content?

Are you sure that the file is not corrupt? – Dan D. Feb 23 '13 at 8:40
no it's not.... i've downloaded it again but the same thing... It gave me just an error "No files to extract" – Optiqual Feb 23 '13 at 8:45
Have you tried a different extractor? Have tried other computers or operating systems? – user 99572 is fine Feb 23 '13 at 9:31
yes with 7 zip but same problem :( – Optiqual Feb 23 '13 at 11:13
In Properties - Archive menu, appears 0% in left side, and Total Files: 0 – Optiqual Feb 23 '13 at 13:35

I usually have hidden files in Windows Eplorer enabled, so I haven't seen something similar. Try enabling hidden files. In Vista, 7 and 8 this is done from Control Panel, Folder Options. If still there is nothing there you might have used a wrong password. Make sure you type the correct password to unlock the RAR archive.
