How to Extract file TST?

Figured it out, you can only select the first item of each group of tst/rar files. If you select multiple (from the same group of files) and then extract, it will double extract.

On all other Winrar files (including your releases), this does not happen, only on these tst files. But easy enough to avoid.
If you select multiple and then extract --> Just choice: No to all


It will then show you a warning, but it's not a problem of concern


just ignore it.

I know I can ignore it, but the question is why it does ask to overwrite... this shouldn't happen on proper archives. Also, as I've seen this in the past on different archives (not from you), that the multiple versions of the same file can have different file sizes (e.g. one with 120Kb and another with 1GB), so simply choosing "no to all" may end up with an extraction with incorrect files. Real question is, why your new archives do that.

Or avoid all of this, by choosing just the first file of each archive.

I don't know, but if you change .tst = .rar there will be no problem.
because you don't want to change name .tst then It will then show you a warning, but it's not a problem of concern, just ignore it.
that's all I can know.

I did rename the tst to rar prior to extracting, still double extracting.

no worries, only selecting the first file avoids it. easy enough.

I believe the tst files are for security reasons so the files stay longer. I don't mind going through this new process if the files are available for a longer period of time. It's actually not that complicated.
- You do step #1 once to associate tst files with WinRAR program
- You do step #2 once to save the preset like I explained in my post above
- Finally, once all tst files are downloaded for a movie all you need to do is run the renamer program to rename all files from tst to rar and unzip using the usual pwd
Thanks for the keeping the instruction simple. It was very easy to do in a matter of seconds.
