A .zip or .rar file is a file that stores and compresses one or more other files. Recently, I tried downloading albums from my Flickr account, but I often received the same error message when opening the .zip file: Unexpceted end of archive. Very frustrating; the message was still there even after redownloading that zip file.


There is, however, a solution. This will explain the solution when using WinRar, but it should also work in other popular file archive programs. Also, this error message can appear on various archive filetypes, including .rar, .zip, .tar, .tar.gz

You will then be asked in what folder the repaired archive should be saved. Choose a folder. The archive type should be the same as the file extension of the original file (so if it is a .zip file, choose ZIP and for a .rar. choose Rar). Click OK.

ZIP files generally use the file extensions .mw-parser-output .monospacedfont-family:monospace, or .ZIP and the MIME media type application/zip.[1] ZIP is used as a base file format by many programs, usually under a different name. When navigating a file system via a user interface, graphical icons representing ZIP files often appear as a document or other object prominently featuring a zipper.

WinZip, starting with version 12.1, uses the extension .zipx for ZIP files that use compression methods newer than DEFLATE; specifically, methods BZip, LZMA, PPMd, Jpeg and Wavpack. The last 2 are applied to appropriate file types when "Best method" compression is selected.[28][29]

The File Explorer in Windows XP does not support ZIP64, but the Explorer in Windows Vista and later do.[citation needed] Likewise, some extension libraries support ZIP64, such as DotNetZip, QuaZIP[40] and IO::Compress::Zip in Perl. Python's built-in zipfile supports it since 2.5 and defaults to it since 3.4.[41] OpenJDK's built-in supports ZIP64 from version Java 7.[42] Android Java API support ZIP64 since Android 6.0.[43] Mac OS Sierra's Archive Utility notably does not support ZIP64, and can create corrupt archives when ZIP64 would be required.[44] However, the ditto command shipped with Mac OS will unzip ZIP64 files.[45] More recent[when?] versions of Mac OS ship with info-zip's zip and unzip command line tools which do support Zip64: to verify run zip -v and look for "ZIP64_SUPPORT".

A Seek-Optimized ZIP file (SOZip) profile [48] has been proposed for the ZIP format. Such file contains one or several Deflate-compressed files that are organized and annotated such that a SOZip-aware reader can perform very fast random access (seek) within a compressed file. SOZip makes it possible to access large compressed files directly from a .zip file without prior decompression. It combines the use of ZLib block flushs issued at regular interval with a hidden index file mapping offsets of the uncompressed file to offsets in the compressed stream. ZIP readers that are not aware of that extension can read a SOZip-enabled file normally and ignore the extended features that support efficient seek capability.

Some development libraries licensed under open source agreement are libzip, libarchive, and Info-ZIP. For Java: Java Platform, Standard Edition contains the package "" to handle standard .ZIP files; the Zip64File library specifically supports large files (larger than 4 GB) and treats .ZIP files using random access; and the Apache Ant tool contains a more complete implementation released under the Apache Software License.

The Path parameter accepts specific file names and file names with wildcards, *.vsd. ThePath uses a comma-separated list to get files from different directories. The compression levelis Fastest to reduce processing time. The DestinationPath parameter specifies the locationfor the file. The file contains Draftdoc.docx and all the files with a.vsd extension.

Absolute path and file names are used because the LiteralPath parameter doesn't acceptwildcards. The Path uses a comma-separated list to get files from different directories. Thecompression level is Fastest to reduce processing time. The DestinationPath parameterspecifies the location for the file. The file only contains Draftdoc.docxand diagram2.vsd.

Compress-Archive uses the Path parameter to specify the root directory, C:\Reference. TheDestinationPath parameter specifies the location for the archive file. The archiveincludes the Reference root directory, and all its files and subdirectories.

Compress-Archive uses the Path parameter to specify the root directory, C:\Reference with anasterisk (*) wildcard. The DestinationPath parameter specifies the location for the archivefile. The archive contains the root directory's files and subdirectories. TheReference root directory is excluded from the archive.

Compress-Archive uses the Path parameter to specify the root directory, C:\Reference with astar-dot-star (*.*) wildcard. The DestinationPath parameter specifies the location for thearchive file. The archive only contains the Reference root directory's files and theroot directory is excluded.

Get-ChildItem uses the Path parameter to specify two files from different directories. Eachfile is represented by a FileInfo object and is sent down the pipeline to Compress-Archive.The two specified files are archived in

The command updates with newer versions of existing files in the C:\Referencedirectory and its subdirectories. And, new files that were added to C:\Reference or itssubdirectories are included in the updated archive.

The Archive plugin provides a jEdit VFS for browsing the contents of tar and zip archives and opening the files they contain as jEdit buffers. More precisely, Archive supports *.jar, *.zip, *.tar, *.tar.gz, and *.tar.bz2 archives. Browsing and viewing nested archives is also supported.

The change history to the Rtools is below.Tools for 64 bit Windows buildsRtools 2.12 and later include both 32 bit and 64 bit tools.Most of the tools used for 32 bit builds work fine as well for 64 bit builds,but the gcc version may be different, and it has changed a number of times. R 3.3.0 and later use a toolchain based on gcc 4.9.3 and mingw-w64 v3, puttogether by Jeroen Ooms and others. See the project page for details. R-patched subsequent to Jan 22, 2012, R-devel, and releases after 2.14.1 used a toolchain based on pre-4.6.3 gcc, put together by Prof. Brian Ripley and available as on his web page. Rtools 2.15 to 3.3 includes this toolchain. It uses the same gcc version for both 32 and 64 bit builds. Separate versions of the gdbdebugger are also included for each archtecture.Builds of R 2.13.x and R 2.14.0,1 used a release based on pre-4.5.2 gcc. Rtools 2.14 includesbinaries put together by Prof. Brian Ripley and available from his web page. To install these, select the "MinGW64" component when installing Rtools.For the later R 2.11.x versions, we used the MinGW-w64version based on pre-4.4.4 gcc from Prof. Ripley, which is no longer available.We also used this version for development builds of R 2.12.0 up to July 20.R 2.11.0 used -w64/files/Toolchains%20targetting%20Win64/Automated%20Builds/, but this is apparently no longer availablefor download.To install any of these older versions, follow the instructions on Prof. Ripley's web page.DownloadsThere are a number of downloads described in the "Windows Toolset" appendix.

The internationalization library has beenupdated to version 1.11.The files for Tcl/Tk support have been updated to version 8.4.13.mingw-runtime >= 3.10 is required to build R (a bug fix in the handingof MBCS code is required). This is enforced by a check in buildingRpwd.exe.Our daily builds no longer use the patched version of ld.exe, we use a newerversion of the unpatched utility. We have not tested the new setup on Windows NT4. If you are usingthat OS and the builds do not work, please let us know.Changes since R 2.2.1- The cmp utility is required to build R; a copy has been added to [NB: is no longer distributed].- There is a bug in the MinGW ld.exe linker utility version 2.16.91 20050827.This bug does not affect the linking method used in R up to 2.2.x, but is likely to affect the method usedin R 2.3.x or higher, making such builds fail to run on Windows NT 4 systems. Our dailybuilds are now using the patched version, but it is not included in the Rtools collection.See the instructions below to obtain and install a copy of the patched version.

Files are compressed using the DEFLATE compression, as described in the "Appnote.txt" file. However, files are stored without compression if they are already compressed. zip/2 and zip/3 check the file extension to determine if the file is to be stored without compression. Files with the following extensions are not compressed: .Z, .zip, .zoo, .arc, .lzh, .arj.

Finally, the -tzip parameter isn't needed if the archive filename ends in .zip. 7-Zip is smart enough to figure out which format you want in those cases. It's only required when you want a custom extension (e.g. 7za.exe a -tzip foo.xpi for a Mozilla Add-on).

Consider folder structure like C:\Parent\SubFolders..... And you want to create which will contain all files and folders C:\Parent without parent folder [i.e it will start from SubFolders.....]

Create readme.txt.bz2,, readme.txt.gzip and readme.txt.xz archives from readme.txt. Create a.7z with LZMA method that contains all files: readme.txt.bz2 readme.txt.gz readme.txt readme.txt.xzWe have a.7z (3740 bytes). You can look that file in hex editor.It must have structure similar to structure of 7z file described above. 041b061a72
