Win zip cannot extract the files from the archives



Such issue will occur if you wish to extract the file into a path that have got a large number of characters in it. The number of path’s character shouldn’t be more than 260 characters, where NTFS file system supports 32,000 characters. But most of the programs allow 260 characters.

In order to extract the file, you have to choose a closer location, for example, a folder on desktop or wherever.

Also, you should try to use 7-zip which is the best and perfect compression/extraction software ever. Download 7-Zip.
