Not that i know of. Since it is incomplete if you try to extract it, it will just give an error saying incomplete file re-download. Since it is already compressed i dont think there is a way to extract any files off of it.

In general you can run completed files out of an incomplete archive. If it won't let you drag the completed files out (it should, I've never had any particular problem doing that), you can try running the files and saving them manually if they're a filetype you can open.
