Error opening zip archive


#1

A couple of days ago I updated its zip archive and add the new data.
Today decided to open it and add one more thing, however, granted the application WinZip error: “The archive was empty or otherwise corrupt.”

When the file had become damaged, I do not know.

Are there any methods for recovery of archives in addition to built-in features in WinZip recovery?
