    I have a corrupt LARGE zip file (107mb).

    I have tried the free "ZipRepair" by "CrocWare" but it could not
    recover anything.

    I then tried "Advanced Zip Repair" (yeah, I know, shareware but
    anything is worth a try) and it told me that the files in the zip
    could be recovered but it will only fix files less than 3mb :-(

    Can anyone recommend a free program that will do a better job than
    "ZipRepair"?

    Thanks in advance for any info.

  4. Not exactly a repair program but a plan - unzip -v to get a list of
    files within then unzip them individually - you'll at least get all the
    good ones.

    Can't tell you much, but someone will be along shortly to offer advice. In
    the meantime, you might like to look for earlier posts on the same subject.
    And as for posting, whatever you do, don't post in HTML. And if you want to
    post test messages, please use a TEST group.

    alt.test --------------------------------->
    misc.test ------------------------------>
    za.test --------------------------------->

    The purpose of test newsgroups is to allow users to test
    their news software and servers without annoying others.

    FYI http://www.uwasa.fi/~ts/http/testpost.html

    Thank You :)

    PeeJay you might have noticed quite a fe "Boomers around lately. The
    one that you just replied to is the "other" TROLL Boomer. "It's"
    been morphing into other peoples identies also.

    There was nothing wrong with your post. :)

    But now I see he is doing it to others too.

    This behaviour of Boomers is WORSE than posting in HTML or posting
    test messages!!

    I had the same problem. I downloaded a 28 meg zip file from a newsgroup
    but a few parts were missing and winzip refused to open it.
    I couldn't see anywhere in winzip to repair a zip file but I remembered a
    DOS program called pkzipfix.exe. That did the job and I was able to recover
    all the zipped files that were complete.
