Select your file, Right Click and select "Extract All". That comes up with
"unknown compression format."
For big files the Wizards incredibly slow so I use PKZip 4.0 (PKZip having
invented the format AFAIK).
However PKZip crashes on this file. Comes up in the debugger with "Unhandled
exception at 0x0043c90d in pkzipw.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading
My guess is that somebody has extended the original pkzip format and made that
the default when compressing files, for whatever reason I dont know, or maybe
the spec has been modified recently. Anyway I have had a couple of these files
which dont seem to follow the original spec in the last couple of weeks and I
can do nothing with them whatsoever except to delete them I'm afraid as they
dont seem to be backward compatible with the original spec.
