Fedora version : Fedora Workstation 35
I have a zip file (
2021-YearEnd-Full-Bkp.zip shown below).
It is zipped in Windows 10 and it has several subdirectories and files inside. It is 6 GB in size. From Windows, I copied it to my portable HDD and then transferred it to my Fedora 35 laptop. I have done this before and it worked for smaller files. But, the unzip is not working for this one.
From GUI (Gnome Files), I right-click on the zip file > choose ‘Open with Archive Manager’ , I get the following error :
So, I run
unzip command from the command-line and I get the following error.
$ ls -lh total 12G drwxr-xr-x. 4 sysadmin sysadmin 4.0K Oct 3 13:23 03-Oct-2021 drwxr-xr-x. 3 sysadmin sysadmin 4.0K Oct 4 00:08 03-Oct-2021-Delta -rwxrwxrwx. 1 sysadmin sysadmin 2.7G Oct 3 13:11 03-Oct-2021.zip drwxr-xr-x. 3 sysadmin sysadmin 4.0K Jul 4 2021 04-July-2021 -rwxrwxrwx. 1 sysadmin sysadmin 2.7G Aug 15 12:02 15-Aug-2021.zip -rwxrwxrwx. 1 sysadmin sysadmin 6.0G Jan 3 21:33 2021-YearEnd-Full-Bkp.zip $ $ unzip 2021-YearEnd-Full-Bkp.zip Archive: 2021-YearEnd-Full-Bkp.zip warning [2021-YearEnd-Full-Bkp.zip]: 2121100311 extra bytes at beginning or within zipfile (attempting to process anyway) error [2021-YearEnd-Full-Bkp.zip]: start of central directory not found; zipfile corrupt.

Any work around for this ? BTW, this file is unzipping fine in a Windows server.
