Title:

7-zip doesn't open the archive folder

Text:

I zipped the "My Documents" folder in WindowsXP ( SP 3 ) using the default application (Send To- Zipped folder) and now it won't unzip.

When using the MS app it comes up " The Compressed folder is invalid or corrupted"

I tired WinZip " Cannot open file; it does not appear to be a valid archive"

Tired 7-zip " Cannot open file.... as archive".

Tried doing a virus scan on it but came back clean.

Any suggestions from here?

Device:
