  1. Unable to Unzip compressed folders. Error: ‘The Compressed (zipped) Folder is invalid or...


    I recently began using DropBox to download files, and I was able to download one folder perfectly fine, able to unzip and view image files at will. However, the second ZIP folder I downloaded from my DropBox account could neither be unzipped nor could any files be viewed within the folder. The error I receive when attempting to unzip the folder is "The Compressed (zip) Folder ... is invalid." I have 824 GB of free space on my (CUnable to Unzip compressed folders. Error: ‘The Compressed (zipped) Folder is invalid or... :) drive and the folder in question is supposedly 285,936 KB, which is surprising due to the lack of images able to be seen. I asked the creator of the DropBox folder itself and they stated that they could download and view the contents of the folder without any issue, so it must be an error on my end. I do not have Storage Sense active and despite my best efforts could not enable Controlled Folder Access for DropBox, which were the only options I saw that could have any effect.

    compressed folder not unzipping

    Hi Jaykar,

    We need more information about your concern so that we can identify the cause of the issue. Did you download the compressed folder through a website? It's possible that the download got interrupted thus resulting to an invalid file/folder. There are instances
    that even the download was incomplete it still shows the whole file size of the file/folder. We suggest that you re-download the file/folder and make sure that the download won't be interrupted. If the issue still persists, we suggest that you download other
    file archiver (WinRar, 7-Zip, etc.) to extract your file/folder and see if it works.

    Looking forward to your response.
