How Do You Extract an SFV File?

Use WinRAR to extract an SFV file from a compressed archive on computers and smartphones. You need an Internet connection, a Web browser, and a computer or an Android smartphone to get started.

  1. Download WinRAR

    Open your Web browser, and navigate to the WinRAR website. Click Downloads from the left sidebar, and wait for the new page to load. Select your download from the list of operating systems at the top of the page. Though Windows and Android WinRAR versions have a graphical user interface, Linux and Mac versions only have command lines.

  2. Install WinRAR

    For Windows and Android, double-click or tap the download file to run the installer. Follow the on-screen prompts to install the program. For Mac and Linux users, run WinRAR in the command line.

  3. Extract the SFV file

    For Windows and Android, navigate to the SFV archive, and double-click or tap the archive to open it in WinRAR. Click the Extract button to copy the compressed files to your folder. Afterward, run the files in the appropriate program. For Mac and Linux users, point the command line to the SFV archive, and extract it. Close any open folders on your desktop, and close the WinRAR application to end the session.
