3. Click on open button
4. Press Alt R
5. Repairing File Name.rar will be opened
6. Click on browse to save repaired file at desired location
7. Check Treat the corrupt archive as ZIP box, and then click OK
8. After corrupt RAR archive is repaired, click on close.
If your file is highly corrupted and you need to use software then you can use additional software. You can use recovery toolbox for ZIP. You can find it here http://goo.gl/pYF63J

How to repair damaged ZIP file?

You may try a 3rd party ZIP recovery tool to recover your data from corrupted ZIP files. Or if you are looking for an easy and simple way to repair corrupted ZIP file, you can try WinRAR utility. It supports a built-in repair feature that can repair corrupted ZIP file. But sometimes, it fails if corruption is severe. In such situation, you need to use a 3rd party recovery tool. I can recommend you to check free demo of SysInfoTools ZIP Recovery tool. It will recover your data from corrupted ZIP file in their original form.

To read more about this tool and to download its free demo version, you may visit: http://www.sysinfotools.com/recovery/zip-recovery.html

Restore and Repair ZIP File

by Bassiel In reply to How to repair damaged ZIP ...

In WinRar application, you will find the option to repair .zip file which is inaccessible due to corruption. When browsing for the corrupt .zip file, check the option "treat the corrupt archive as ZIP". This option may work and can make the data accessible.
