“Help! Help! Help! Few days back I compressed multiple files on my computer using advanced ZIPX file compression technique and saved the ZIPX archives onto my external drive. Yesterday when I tried extracting data from ZIPX file, I failed to do so. I then tried again, but ended with the same result with error message stating 'ZIPX Header corrupt'. What did I do with my ZIPX header now? I need to recover all my data stuff from ZIPX archive that is left with corrupt header. Can anybody suggest some solution for repairing ZIPX header? Many Thanks..!”
Stuck up with similar issue 'ZIPX Header Corrupted'? Don't! What is ZIPX Header and what happens if header gets corrupt / damaged?
Header is data packet for ZIPX archives that holds all informative description about the files like file name and file name length, local file header signature, compressed and uncompressed size of file, file last modification time and date. In any case, the header of your ZIPX archive is damaged, then it makes the file inaccessible and non-usable, which means that you would not be able to extract any of the information saved in that specific archive. Also, the operating system and the extracting tool you are employing would fail to read the data on header corruption. This header damage would make you experience same kind of scenario, which in turn result in severe loss of data.
