Zip Recovery is a cross platform, light weight, fast and easy to use app that can extract broken zip files which can't be extracted using common archiving tools.
The ones at =+> mov2.net/passwordcracker <+= are more recent and work like a charm .. for free too for sure!!!
I have a heavily corrupted archive file for years now. Occasionally I tinker and try to recover the data. This is the first software I've found that has been able to have any success at all with the file. Thank you very much Subhra!
