I have tried many time to extract my files from Zip files but don't access and show such error message "the archive is corrupt or damaged" so in such intricate situation, what Can I do for recovering my data as possible as without formatting any one file content. Also I have asked my friends a lot of time but they can't give me any precious solution to repair Zip files.

Try repairing the Zip archive by following these steps:

Click Start -> Click All Programs-> Click Accessories
Right click on the Command Prompt and Run as Administrator ( Left click Command Prompt for Windows XP)
Change directories to the file folder of the damaged Zip file is located
Type: "C:Program FilesWinZipwzzip" -yf
If the damaged file is spanned or split, use the following command:
"C:Program FilesWinZipwzzip" -yfs

NOTE: This might not be a fool proof solution and you might loose the valuable data. Create a backup file before you carry out above mentioned steps.

If the problem persist, you can go for some third-party Zip Recovery Software.
