Two possibilities may arise. First that the file in the zip, or rather the folder in the zip archive is not error free. Means there is something wrong with the zip file or that it is corrupt. The next issue is with access permissions. The folder if not given access for the user using it, then he or she will not get the access to the folder and that the error may prompt that an IO error has occurred. These are merely two possibilities, but for some other cases, the matter is related to the version of ZIP software installed. Thanks.

I/O error while trying to access a Zip folder?

You usually get I/O error or input/output error when there is a problem with your hardware like your hard drive, USB flash drive, microSD memory card, and others. The problem is either related to its physical connection like with an internal hard drive or the storage media itself like with USB flash drives and memory cards.

If you simply want to access or unpack a ZIP file and you can’t get passed through because of the error, try copying the ZIP file to another computer and open or unpack it there. If you were able to successfully unpack or open the ZIP file there, check the physical connection on your computer.

If the ZIP file was originally stored in a USB flash drive, check the USB drive for errors. If the ZIP file is stored or located on your local hard drive, check the internal connections of your hard drive. Turn off your computer and unplug the CPU from the power outlet. Open the CPU case and check the connected cables on your hard drive.

Disconnect both the power cable and the ribbon cable from the hard drive and then connect them back. After this, plug the CPU to the power outlet and start your computer. Try unpacking the ZIP file again and see if this fixes the problem. Put the CPU case back on afterwards.
