While repairing, the software does not ask for any passwords to repair corrupt archive files and fluently recovers corrupted, inaccessible, compressed and protected archive files with ease. Check out the symptoms of corrupted archive files.
Search & Preview Option
When users are unable to search for a particular file within the compressed file folder, then use the Search option. Just put the name of that archive file and the software will find it from the directory. Additionally, this Archive File Repair tool enables users to preview the recovered data before saving them at user-specific location.
Restores Files from Damaged Media
The Archive recovery software easily restores archive files from damaged external media like floppy disks, CDs, DVDs, Zip drives, etc flawlessly. Once the archive recovery session is completed, all the documents, images, and a text file will be back in an original form as users were expecting.
Fixes Unforeseen Errors
This comprehensive tool can repair multiple archive files errors in just one click such as "CRC errors," "Unexpected end of archive," and much more with maximum precision and effectiveness. It is not uncommon for compressed or archive files to be prone to corruption; learn more about the reasons for corruptions.
Ensure Recovery of Heavy Data
The Archive Recovery Software is robust enough to support archive files more than 1 TB (1024 GB) in size, and recovers large-sized data with maximum effectiveness. Additionally, this Archive Recovery Tool maintains the data integrity of the original compressed files with no data alteration.
This software is deployed with an easy-to-use interactive GUI algorithm that requires no technical expertise. This tool encompasses a simple and easy wizard that any user would be comfortable with its utilization. Read Working Guide.
Free Archive File Repair Tool
SysInfoTools' software dispatches a free version of each new tool so that everyone can download and run the software to evaluate its functionality. The free Archive Recovery Tool lets users to have the preview of repair archive files with each attribute.
Support MAC OS and Windows
SysInfoTools Archive Recovery Tool is able to recover multiple corrupt or lost files formats. Those users who saved their ZIP files created on MAC OS and Windows (10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista, Server 2003, XP, 2000, and NT) can be easily recovered using this tool.
Some Common Errors Displays During File Corruption:
- "The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable"
- "Unexpected end of archive".
- "Invalid data into a Zip file".
- "ZIP file is corrupt".
- "The archive is corrupt".
- "CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) error" appears on the monitor screen.
- "Cannot open file: it does not appear to be a valid archive"
- "Expected ZIP file header not found."
The above error messages indicate that users' files are corrupted and need to be repaired, read the symptoms of archive file corruption. At that time a software application is required to fix the problem.
Specifications of Archive Recovery Software
No, this is a stand-alone application and does not require any additional application(s) to run this software.
Archive Recovery Tool performs multiple file recovery like recovering of RAR, TAR, ZIP, ZIP-64, TAR.Gz and 7-Zip.
The different files inside an archive can be damaged due to many reasons such as
- Virus attacks
- CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) errors,
- Due to an introduction of invalid data into archive file,
- Exposure of media to extreme temperatures or magnetic fields,
- Cross-linked disk sectors,
- Mechanical problems with disk drives
In the demo version of the software, you cannot save the recovered file although the previewing option is supported. However, to save the recovered files you need to buy the full version of the software.
Yes, the Archive Recovery Software supports the recovery of ZIP files larger than 2 GB. ZIP files use two types of compression algorithms: one is a 32-bit deflate algorithm and the other one is 64-bit deflate algorithm. The 64-bit deflate algorithm is used for compression of a file larger than 2 GB due to a 32-bit allocation limitation. The 64-bit algorithm is also known as Enhanced Deflate or Deflate64 and is developed by PKWARE and provides support for larger file size compression. In the early days, file size greater than 2 GB was a Far cry. But as technology grew, this became a real thing and soon became a limitation as file systems need to be evolved to handle such amount of data into a single file. Earlier file systems like FAT32 has 2GB file limitation which also keeps ZIP-32 in a comfortable situation. But in today's scenario, any folder which has any file larger than 2 GB is automatically compressed by the deflate64 algorithm instead of deflate32. Although file extension remains the same but internally both are quite different. The Archive Recovery software from SysInfoTools supports the recovery of both types of the ZIP compression algorithm.
I tried to extract a file from the software but received files containing 0 byte in size. What is causing this?
In the "save" dialog, the Archive Recovery software allows you to save the repaired file in the original format besides extracting data in an uncompressed format. ZIP or other popular compression algorithms used by many third-party vendors to roll out their software for compression and decompression support and there are more than hundreds of such tools besides these deflate used by many web servers to provide compression features either in transmission or data downloading and uploading. Almost all use the ZLIB library and this ZLIB is holy-grail of all deflate or ZIP related compression schemes. Some vendors modify or tweak some of the internal mechanisms in order to get more compression which makes them non-standard and hence in such cases decompression of recovered stream might get failed due to non-standard implementation. But there is an advantage that SysInfoTools Archive Recovery software also outputs a repaired ZIP file in which you can decompress using the tool from which you have generated this archive file and in this manner, you can also recover data from non-standard ZIP files too. Although this information is related to ZIP specifically, information can also be applied on RAR, ZIP64, tar.gz, and tar.gz2.
The software keeps original date & time information intact and uses AS-IS to generate a repaired archive file, so you can assure that the original date and timestamp remains intact. During extraction, the software resets file and folder timestamp to its original setting [not current date time], so you can get all file folder with hierarchical format along with original date-time information than the current date.
What is the accuracy of demo version as I can see the data but am not sure about the outcome as a preview option is not available?
Almost all archive formats are supported by the software to save compressed file files and its data in linear fashion and most of the time corruption is pre-truncation or post truncation of compressed files. In this way, you are assured enough to get all files except the very last entry in file lists. However, there is a chance that you might not get all data from the last entry in the file list. So, during the evaluation, please keep that in mind.
After the recovery of tar.gz or tar.gz2, sometimes the data is not complete. Am I missing something here?
After the repairing process of tar.gz and tar.gz2, the software generates extracted files as well as .tar files and ZIP format as there are almost a hundred or so variants of TAR format. Thus, you might not have access to original software which made this file. In this scenario, you can utilize.TAR recovery feature of the software to extract data from TAR files which were generated after recovery of tar.gz or tar.gz2.
