ZIP Recovery and Repair

Zip file is an archive that contains one or more files in compressed form to minimize their size. Files are Zipped together in order to make it easier to email or store large number of files as a single attachment. Zip files have .zip or .zipx file extension.

Transferring or sharing compressed files i.e. Zip file over a network is a common task thus there are more chances of Zip file corruption during this process. Zip file may get corrupted due to several reasons like virus attack, improper system shutdown or sudden power failures while extracting the data from Zip file, interruption while transferring Zip file etc.

Zip files might not just corrupted they might be even lost or accidentally deleted, in such scenarios you would need to recover the file and not repair it. Remo Software brings to you applications that can help you in both scenarios.

Common scenarios in which Zip file might get corrupted

Zip file corruption due to virus attack: As Zip files are more frequently transferred over network, there are more chances of Zip file corruption due to virus attacks. A virus cannot replicate or operate  itself without the host file or program. Generally, it attaches itself to a Zip file or program sent often via emails. When such Zip files are downloaded and opened, they refuse to open resulting in loss of data.

Due to incomplete file: Corruption due to incomplete downloading or saving of Zip files is the common reason that can cause data loss. You may encounter error messages like “Cannot open .Zip file”, “Header corrupt”,”CRC errors” etc when you try to open such Zip files. These error messages make the contents of Zip files inaccessible resulting in data loss.

Due to central directory corruption or missing: The locations of each file that is compressed separately in the archive are stored in central directory, which is located at the end of Zip file. When the central directory of Zip file is corrupted, you cannot access the contents present in Zip file resulting in data loss.

Interruptions while extracting Zip file: Sudden power failures or abrupt system shut down while extracting Zip file may corrupt the Zip file resulting in data loss. Zip file may also get corrupt due to interruption in internet connection while transferring it over a network.
