Publisher's Description:

DiskInternals ZIP Repair - The zip file format is the most popular form of data storage. It is widely used for backup and transfer of information over the internet. As any format with a well-defined structure, it is highly sensitive to corruptions. In case of even a minor corruption of the file structure standard zip tools will no be able to extract its content. This is because all zip tools check archives for integrity. If CRC values of the original files of an archive don`t match the extracted ones, the standard tools won`t extract them. In such a case DiskInternals ZIP Repair helps repair zip structure and extract the contents of the archive. Full automation of the recovery and a wizard-like interface make zip repair no more than a snap.

After you locate an archive that needs repairing, the program will scan it for damages. Then its robust recovery engine will take over. It will extract and move all the intact files to a new archive. The only other thing expected from you is to name the new archive or specify the location of an existing one. DiskInternals ZIP Repair has built-in extraction features that allow it to extract partially damaged and restored files. It performs at a revving speed and demonstrates high accuracy of the recovery. The program supports all major zip capabilities and reinforces your standard zip applications with an automatic recovery feature. Whether a transmission error or media damage prevents your file access, you can always entrust your valuable data into confident hands of DiskInternls ZIP Repair.

DiskInternals ZIP Repair is a freeware tool. Just download it, unpack and install onto your computer. However, if the user wishes to make the program better and more powerful, the responsive support team will be always glad to hear from you.

Didn't help me:
Zip repair ran and created recoverd zip file.
By opening recovered zip file, I get a erro message as invalid format or file corrupt which is same message seen before repair also.

I spent like two hours installing this thing and letting it do its thing only to find out that it was going to make me pay about $40 bucks to repair the problems, which I thought was cheesy because the add clearly said free download to scan and repair problems. Oh well, I should have known Ain't nuthin in this world for free.

if you could help me with a zip repair program, free, because you can not buy one, I would be very grateful. in this folder are locked all my school papers. if you can help me I let my email address: Thank you

The software is good......
It helped me to regain my data from zip folder; but was only partially sucessful. It was able to extract about 1/3 of the total data.
It is always better to have something rather then nothing

It didn't work for me on the file I tried it on, but I later found out it was incomplete anyway.
So it was not the program's fault.

I had downloaded the wrong program. I was looking for a zip disc recovery program. Not about zip files with lost or corrupted data. So this program was not valuable to me at this time.
Thank you for your interest for reedback.

This program did not work. It restored all the files in the zip as folders, not as jpegs and tifs.

Skip the free trial. You can't do anything useful in trial mode so why bother? Rather than the completely crippled "trial" version, how about a trial that lets the user extract exactly one corrupted archive or that disables itself after a very short trial period? I'd actually like to see the product fix a corrupted zip file.

I'm a 33 year veteran in the computing field. A Network Administrator and IT Manager. I run into bad zip files all the time. I have never come across a better and faster working utility such as DiskInternals ZIP Repair. It can't fix everything, but it does an awesome job on what it can reclaim. This tool is an absolute must for every IT toolbox.

Having successfully downloaded and installed ZIP Repair to recover a file that reported a 'damaged header', it was disappointing to find it unable to do the job. However, that is not to say that there is anything wrong with the program because I am not convinced that repair is possible. I appears that the file was corrupted by using the Firefox Download Helper and this is a known issue for which I have been unable to find a satisfactory solution. On that basis I conclude that ZIP Repair did not fail to do its task. As good as it might be, there are some files that simply cannot be recovered and mine was one of those.

I had a real problem which had been bugging me for some time and this tool solved it in a few moments. A very nice product and something everyone working with Zip archives needs in their toolbox.

Having tried 3 or 4 alternative zip repair tools with no joy already, I was beginning to think my zip file was beyond salvation. I was over the moon when DiskInternals Zip Repair told me that it could actually retrieve the data and build me a new zip file. Beautifully simple interface, easy to use - just point and shoot, and free.
Five gold stars - A+++ - 110% - how many ways can I rate this as brilliant.

i was having issues extracting bonita-5.0, had a real nightmare as it would not extract ... finally i started looking for utilities that would repair archives ... that is when i chanced upon diskinternals zip repair, it did not repair everything, but repaired most of the archive and got me started .... that too for free ... now that is open source ... cheers!

It is a wonderful tool. I had one corrupt zip file which was important for me and I was not able to repair because most of the tools are paid tools. I am very much tahnkful to Disk INternals because of which I was able to repair archive file.

Almost Perfect

Didn't do exactly what I needed it for, but when combined with a second program, the results were perfect - I was able to open a corrupted 3.5Gb zip file containing a mixture of avi jpg exe and wmv files, and only ONE of the files within was unrecoverable!

My only complaint was that the output file had to be renamed to a .rar to complete the process, and this wasn't explained clearly.

Apart from that, it's an excellent utility. Thanks! :-)

My use of DiskInternals Zip Repair

Worked like a charm for me once I got used to how to use it. Very user friendly after that. There was not a single corrupted Zip file that I couldn't repair with it.

DiskInternals ZIP Repair

I was getting an error that my zip was part of a set of files, which was incorrect. Zip repair fixed my problem (mostly), the zip file was corrupt but it managed to recover over half my files.

Zip Repair

Zip repair was a small download, quick install and did exactly as it said. Repaired corrupt .zip file and left me with a 100% working .zip.

I Can`t Use It.

It failed to repair my corrumpted file. It was about 1/4 the way through and then asked me for a password for a file called winzip32.ex_ which should not even be in the archive. I did not know the password but guessed at it and when I did, it accepted it but then, stopped running. When I clicked "Cancel" nothing happened and I waited for over 25 minutes. I finally used Taskmgr to kill the repair process. I am VERY disappointed.

Tried: Testrun passed

I have tried the sw, it is working simply, quick and fine. There was one file that could be repaired by other non-freeware aplication but DiskInternals could make repair only half-way (half of an mp3 file was lost). I think it's service is totally acceptable from a freeware app.

Sr Software Engineer

Had a zip file containg 145 archived files that when opened showed zero contents.
When attempting to add a file, received error "Unsupported or invalid zip file structure". Through Google I downloaded and installled this "DiskInternals ZIP Repair" application. Ran the app and witin 10 seconds the archive was restored with all files intact. I highly recomend this product. 4 stars to the developers!

It actually works.

I downloaded about six different demos of ZIP repair programs... and all six of them were the exact same program with a different company name slapped on. None of the demos worked; they all showed a progress bar for a while and then said, "Sure, this program can fix it if you pay us money..."

I suspect they are all frauds and scams: flashy interfaces with no functionality. So imagine how relieved I was when DiskInternals ZIP Repair (which has a name similar to the fraudulent programs, so it make me nervous) not only worked exactly as advertised, but was also free! It's nice to know there are still some people on the Internet who actually fulfill their promises and aren't just trying to scam a credit-card number. Thanks for this product!

It is ok

The program do can retrieve some files from the truncated zip one.
But it does not give us the choice to choose what files we want do retrieve. Instead of this, it retrieves every file it judges possible.

Didn`t help

I couldn't repair my corrupted zip file, which seems to be recoverable by Kernel Zip software, for which, however, I need to buy a license in order to save the repaired file.

DiskInternals ZIP Repair is very good

I've used this program to fix several damaged files downloaded from the net. It compares very well to other similar programs, i.e. it could recover some content even when all other sofware I used simply failed. So I could recommend it warmly to others to give it a try.

Null Event

Through no fault of the software I was unable to recover the zip file that I needed. The issue was a disk recovery of zip files that renamed the set. Unfortunately the file that I had assumed was a standalone zip was in fact part of a set, many of which were lost. Can't recover what does not exist;>

First Zip Repair experience

This being my first experience with Zip Repair, it's too soon to form an opinion about the software.

I had three corrupt .GZ files, but the software wasn't able to repair any of them.

Though the software was of no help with these files, I will certainly try the software again the next time I encounter corrupted Zip files.

Limited functionality

I tried to use this utility to repair a zip file that spanned several floppy disks. Unfortunately it does not work with spanned media. For that matter I haven't found a utlity that can handle spanned media.
Other than that limitation I cannot truly review this program. I did not have any other damaged zip files to try it on.

Made no improvement to the corrupted file

I had relatively minor crc errors in the file (as determined by a competing tool). This repair tool claimed to have fixed the errors, but the new "fixed" file was still corrupted in exactly the same places.

The best

Beats all other free ones like object fix (which can't fix partialy downloaded zips) - this one is free and works and it is very small.
