Fix Damaged Zip File after Recovery

App to repair Zip file

I was on trip to Germany last week and there I captured lot of pictures from my digital camera. When I came back I transferred all the pictures on my PC. But soon I found out that the free space on computer is very less, so for freeing up some storage space I zipped all photographs of my recent trip to Germany and then I started deleting the unwanted files from my computer. In hurry I accidentally selected that zipped folder too and delete it by using Shift + Delete keys. However, I used a recovery application to recover the Zip file but when I tried to extract the contents of that Zip file it gives an error message. Now what should I do?"
