A Zip file is a highly sensitive to corruption and has a file format, which is open source. It has a specific structure defined in the .Zip application Note. In case of even minor corruption of Zip file structure, Zip tools may not be able to extract the content from it. The most common reasons, which are responsible for corruption of Zip archives, are error while copying the file, malware infection, bad sectors in the hard disk, transmission error, partial download of the compressed Zip files and so on. These corruptions are caused because of CRC error. A Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) error message pops up when unwanted bits get induced to the data, due to which the system fails to perform Cyclic Redundancy Check and this in turn limits the unzipping action of the Zip files making the files present in it, invalid.
