I need software in fixing zip file on Mac

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Got a new imac and received a zipped document from my friend through email a few months ago. I can’t seem to open it right now here on my new computer. It goes back to the same downloaded folder. Is there a software in fixing zip file on mac? I think the file got corrupted but it used to work on my windows computer.

Is the zip file giving you some specific error like – Error 1 – Operation not permitted?

Did you tried opening the zip file using another tool like  7zx
If the issue is actually a damaged zip file, the command line zip tool can try to repair it. For that you'd use the -F or -FF options, like that:
zip -F damaged-copy.zip –out repaired.zip
zip -FF damaged-copy.zip –out repaired.zip
It's always a good practice to do that on a copy of the damaged file, so you're sure you don't damage it any further. To see what the -F and -FF options do, look at the man page: man zip.
