What if you want to send a large amount of data over the internet or other network? Well this is really a great matter of concerns. But, a solution of this problem can be compression of files into a single file. Compression reduces the size of files and such a compressed file is called ZIP file. It comes handy especially when large amount of data has to be sent over a limited bandwidth channel. Apart from this, ZIP file is used to save the storage space by compressing files into single file, which is small in size. Sometimes the corruption of such file takes place in many circumstances. If ZIP file become corrupted then the content of it cannot be utilized. However, there is repair tool available, by making use of which damaged compressed file can be easily repaired.
There are many reasons, which make ZIP file corrupt. Some of them which are most commonly occurring are CRC error, interruption while downloading and virus attack to ZIP file, alteration in file extension and header corruption of ZIP file.
CRC (cyclic redundancy check) error is one of the most commonly encountered causes which makes ZIP file corrupt. CRC is an error detecting code and used by digital network to check accidental changes in raw data is being sent over network. When a block of data is sent, along with this a CRC value is sent and upon receiving the data at the receiver side again CRC value is calculated and matched with CRC value sent with data. If any modification has been made in data then CRC value does not matches which leads to corruption of ZIP file. In such situation user should make use of a repair tool, which is capable enough to fix damaged compressed file.
Another scenario where ZIP file becomes corrupted is virus or malware infection. Suppose user has downloaded RAR file from internet or other network channel and when tries to extract the content of compressed file. But, in spite of extraction of the content, user are shown error message saying that “Unexpected end of archive”. This type of error is shown because of virus or other malicious software, which corrupts ZIPX file. This type of issue can be handled in an effective way with this tool.
