The fixed Zip file still has errors when I try to extract it, why?

If Zip data are corrupted partially, different applications, such as DZIPR and WinZip may possibly use slightly different algorithms to extract the corrupted data. So if items in a Zip file are partially corrupted, it is better to unzip the fixed Zip file with DZIPR again. To do this, please:

      1.  Input your corrupted file name to 'Select Zip or Self extracting file to be repaired' edit box.
      2.  Input a filename with '.exe' extension to the 'Output fixed file' edit box.
      3.  Click "Start Repair", DZIPR will repair the corrupted Zip file and generate a new self-extracting Zip file for it.
      4.  Run the self-extracting Zip file and unzip the files in it.

For example, you want to repair a file named, then if you specify the "Output fixed file" with an '.exe' extension, for example, MyFiles_fixed.exe, DZIPR will repair the Zip file and generate a self-extracting Zip file named MyFiles_fixed.exe. This self-extracting Zip file uses the same decompression engine as DZIPR, so you can extract the partially corrupted items by executing it.
