How to solve error message: “Can not open file: it does not seem to be a valid archive” of corrupt zip file


The extension of Zip files is . "Zip" or ".ZIP" file and MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) media type application. Sometimes there are certain errors in Zip file, which occur due to some problems of the Internet. These errors usually occur when you download the Zip file, which leads to corruption. As a result of corruption, the data stored in the Zip file is inaccessible. To overcome such situations, you can restore data from a recent backup. However, if you do not stored a backup or the backup is corrupted, then you need to use zip recovery software files to recover your data.

Suppose you are trying to download attached zip files from outlook, you can not do so and get a message

"Can not open file: it does not seem to be a valid archive. If you downloaded this file, try downloading the file again."


The data stored in the zip file, becomes inaccessible after the occurrence of above error message.

Reason for error message:

The above situation usually occurs when HTTP compression is enabled in the Web Sites properties of Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) virtual server in outlook. As a result, when you download a zip file, IIS GZIP encoded as the browser client and passes the file directly to the decompression program, without GZIP decoding the file.


Resolution:

To solve the above problem you can chang the MIME type for the file. Zip application / x-zip-compressed to application / octet-stream. To do this, follow these steps:

* In the Start menu, select Internet Information Server (IIS) in the Administrative Tools option.
* Then, expand the server (local computer), click Web Sites and click Properties.
* Click on the MIME types and scroll through the list of registered MIME types to find the entry of . Zip.
* Then you must click zip Application/x- Zip compressed entry and then click Edit.
* Change the value of MIME type application / octet-stream.
* Finally, stop and restart the IIS Admin Service to apply the changes.


In most cases, given the previous resolutions will help you resolve problems with zip. But if the problem persists, then Zip Repair files to recover and restore corrupted data.

How to solve 'The Backup File Contains Unrecognized Data and Cannot Be Used' backup (.bkf) error


Backup files (.bkf) are created by using Ntbackup utility in Windows NT and XP. Users which move from windows XP to windows 7 are usually faced backup restoration related issue. Backup created in windows XP by using Ntbackup utility can't restore in windows 7 because windows 7 doesn't support it, when you try to do so, error message "the backup file contains unrecognized data and cannot be used" will pop up. This message will also appear when you try to restore corrupt backup files (.bkf) on windows xp machine. In that situation you can use bkf repair tool to overcome from such situation.
But in the case of windows 7 you need to find some other method to fix this error. Here I am going to explain few solutions which you can use.



  1. Download and install windows NTbackup utility on your windows 7 machine to restore backup files (.bkf). To run windows Ntbackup utility on windows 7 you need to enable Removable Storage Management feature (RSM). If you are able to install it on windows 7 then you can restore your backup files without any problem.



  1. Second method is little lengthy, this method will work when you try to restore backup from external hard drive (backup created in Windows XP). In such situation copy entire backup file (.bkf) from external hard drive into the “XPMuser” profile inside documents and settings. Then run NTbackup utility and try to restore your backup now.
Most probably these solutions are able to fix your problem. But is some cases it may possible that you still get same error message. In that situation you need to contact to Microsoft Windows 7 support team.

-->
You may have faced an error message while saving your Excel workbook that says MS Excel cannot access the location where you are trying to save the file. In this case, the file is not saved and it leads to a pure case of data loss. If you have updated data backup then you can recover lost data very easily. However, in the absence of proper updated backup, you can still retrieve data of the Excel workbook with the excel repair software.

Consider a scenario where you have an Excel workbook to be saved to a network location. While the book is cut paste in the desired location on a network, you have an error message that says:

"Microsoft Excel cannot access the file 'Network path'”. You may receive this error message for the following reasons:

The file name or path does not exist.
The file you are trying to open is being used by another program. Close the document in another program and try again.
The name of the book is trying to save is the same as the name of another document that is read-only. Try saving the workbook with a different name. "

When it came to save the workbook in another place, he received another error message which reads as follows:

"Document not saved"

Receive the above error messages when you performed the following activities:

Saving files to a network drive and connection to the network drive is lost
Your workbook contains some of the PivotTable, Visual Basic for Applications module or embedded objects such as clip art.

To resolve the problem discussed in the previous text, add PivotTableNetworkResiliency and NetworkResiliency subkeys in the registry by performing the following steps:

Click 'Start' to 'Run'
Go to the "open box" and click 'OK'
Expend items on the left panel and click on the folder 'Options'
Go to 'Edit' and 'DWORD Value', click on the "New" option
Type "NetworkResiliency 'and press ENTER
Double-click the icon that says "NetworkResiliency '
Go to the box "Value data" and type '1 '
Click 'OK'

However, even after performing the above steps, you can still get the error messages and that problem can still exist. In this scenario, you need to use excel recovery software to repair corrupt excel file.

Cycle Redundancy Check Errors – Try BKF Recovery

CRC PressImage via WikipediaRedundancy of HLR, case: two HLRs, both are ac...Image via Wikipedia
Cycle Redundancy Check (CRC) arise when BKF file get corrupt or damage during backup transfer period. It is an important activity to take daily backup of your files to keep the record. This activity you can’t avoid or ignore it is vital to save your data as backup. This way you can prevent your important data from any major system errors or system failure on daily basis. In MS Windows users can create data backup using the inbuilt NTBackup tool and files get saved as Microsoft Backup Files (BKF) format. These BKF files help to retrieve data if it is lost from other locations. But, there it is also possible that NTBackup data may get damaged or corrupt. Once NTBackup get corrupt then BKF Recovery tool is helpful.



BKF Files may get corrupt due to Interrupted/or Incomplete backup process, due to unexpected or improper system shutdown, may be Application malfunctioning fault, CRC (Cycle Redundancy Check errors), due to Media read error or Virus attack or any other insufficient condition which create any critical situation data backup.



An error that I am going to discuss about is the CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) error. CRC is essentially an error-checking method in data communications where a CRC character is produced at the transmission end. The value of this character depends upon the hexadecimal value of all the ones in the data block. This check is used to validate a data block’s integrity. This error reflects if some bytes inside the file get overwritten due to any reason. It may be you attempt to restore the bkf files and get a CRC error which mostly happens while restoring a BKF file which is originally saved over network. Even after you have received such error, bkf recovery is possible and is very simple with Stellar Phoenix BKF Recovery Software.




Cyclic Redundancy Check error shows up in the situations where your BKF gets damaged while transferring it from network to the system for restoration of data or the catalog files are missing. Use Stellar Phoenix BKF Recovery Software to solve the issue and to properly retrieve data in its original form from the BKF files. It is an efficient yet cost-effective way to end all your CRC troubles.

Ways To Repair Damaged BKF Files Due To Improper System Shutdown

Windows data can be corrupt or damaged at any point of time, to protect your valuable data you must take regular backup of data. To insure security of data windows provide an in-build utility called NT Backup, which is present in Windows NT (XP, 2000, 2003) systems. All data is copied as BKF files in the NT backup. On the other hand BKF files sometimes get corrupt. It is due to the abrupt crash, lack of catalog files, the CRC errors. To overcome from data loss situations, you need to use a third party BKF repair tool to repair corrupt BKF files. 

To illustrate this, let's take a scenario where you are trying to add data incrementally in the BKF file, while an abrupt system is get shutdown, this will lead to BKF file corruption. Next time when you trying to open BKF files, you could not do so.

So once packed new backup, you should opt for a third-party BKF repair tool for recovery of corrupted data. These tools use the algorithm so that BKF files repairs quickly and rigorously, and scans the damaged area successfully to repair BKF files.
