Why RAR files will be corrupted?

I created a RAR file normally using WINRAR, but when I send to some one and
when they extract the rar it shows that the archive is corrupt.
So what are possible reasons for a RAR to get corrupted.

Oh,) Also check the version of WinRAR your recipient is using, RAR5 compression needs the newer RAR versions to decompress. WinRAR 3.x for example can't handle the newer algorithms and even though a WinRAR product returns a "?Corrupt file" message.
Just in case you read this information. Might find something useful.
