Greetings all. I recently was formatting my harddrive and decided to compress all my files into one archive, save it on my other internal hard drive and format.
After hte format was complete, I realized that the file had infact not finished. It seems that a lot of it did as the 7z file is 5.1gb. I'd like to extract some small files from it (most less than 100kb). Is there a way I can get in and get some of the files out?
I tried renaming it to *.7z. No luck.
type in search box:
recover 7z archive
and read 2013's posts.
Thanks for your response man. I had searched and had come across that post.
The original file bad.7z.tmp was 5gb
I created a fix.ISO file that was about 14gb
I split the bad.7z.tmp into 2 parts with the 32b file being the smallest part.
I split the ISO into 3 parts 32 32-5gb and the rest
I then extracted the file that was left. I have fix.iso on my hard drive now. When I try to get in it with 7z I get error "can not open fix.iso as an archive"
I even tried to mount the iso and to open the iso both giving me an error.
I read that I have to use a parser file to extract the data. That's the part that I got lost at. I looked through google for a good parser, but couldn't find any. I did however find the file signature of my file in question. Could you tell me what I need to do to parse my files out?
I can use ubuntu linux or windows 7 so whatever works best let me know
Try 7-Zip 9.32 alpha. It supports "Parser" mode via context menu "Open archive > #".
7-Zip's parser supports only archive types (zip, rar, and so on). It doesn't parse jpg, mp3 and so on.
Maybe there are more smart parsers.
