Let’s concentrate on CRC error. Zip software actually use techniques to compress the files and for this they have certain algorithms. The very foremost thing in the algorithm is to add the parity checks bit. This bit is an extra added bit to the compressed and encrypted file. The concept of adding the bit is brought to keep the check on the completion of process (encryption and decryption). When this encryption and decryption is performed then one extra parity bit is added at that moment which keeps a check on each encryption and decryption process. Cyclic Redundancy Check is named as CRC.

In case if due to any reason this parity check bit or CRC bit gets corrupted or removed due to any reason then this will result in CRC error while accessing the Zip File. Hence, you only have one solution and that is to repair ZIP files CRC failed errors. This you can do by using the Zip file Repair Software. If you want to repair RAR files, here is the best way to go -

Alternatively, parity archive is also accompanied with the file and is known as PAR. This additionally added bit keeps the check on additional error occurrence. When the multiple files are compressed then this bit comes in action and indicates the error if occurs. Now let’s see the conducts which may result in corruption of ZIP files.

  • Changing the extension of the ZIP file
  • Creating the Zip of multiple or single files by using the inappropriate or pirated tool
  • Zipping the virus infected files using Zip tool
  • Extracting the Zip files / folders using pirated version tool
