I have a zipped file and one of the file inside the zip is 452,517 kb.  I have almost 600 gigs free on my hard drive.  How can I copy the file to my desktop and stop getting this error.  Is this a bug?

A petabyte (PB) is 1000 terabytes.

click the 'start' orb
type cmd in the search box
hold down Ctrl+Shift and hit Enter
(or right-click the result that appears at the top of the start menu, under Programs (1), and choose Run as administrator)
answer Yes to the UAC prompt
In the Administrator window that opens, run the command
chkdsk C: /R

then reboot and let chkdsk run until it's complete. It could take quite a while depending on how large the drive is.

make sure clearing the recycle bin if still issue persists then try defraging your HDD and check.

maybe reinstall winzip, or recreate zipped file
you can test winzip if it creates, and unzips correct with other files

can you download it correct to another system?
that would show where the problem is: in the file or the PC

Do you mean you get the same error when trying to copy it from the server to your desktop?
Or when you try to extract the file from the zip to the server?
Or when you try to copy the zip file to the server?

Sounds like the zip file is corrupt. Did you get any PARity files with it so it could be repaired?

Is it something confidential, or can we get a link to it so we can download it to verify if it's corrupt on their server or if something happened to it during downloading?
