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.

"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.


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.

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.
