Not all corrupted zip files can be recovered..and even if they can, there's no guarantee that all of the contents will or can be recovered..so be warned and don't expect too much.

With that said, here are links to two articles that should help you get your data back, if it is at all possible..


6 Ways to Repair and Extract Invalid ZIP Files for Free

How to repair a broken Zip file


Hope these help..and best of luck..let us know how you get on.  ;)

And next time, don't use Windows so-called archive wizard, but a real compression tool. Many free tools are available, my advise: 7-zip or peazip.
