RECOVERING GRAPHICS FILES - Unit 7 Computer Forensics Assignment

Recovering a File

     In order to open the apparently corrupt zip file, orkty.zip, we must first repair it.  There are numerous reasons why a file may become corrupt, although the most common reason is that it would have a damaged Header part.   The Header is the part of the file which contains important data such as the file size, compressing and decompressing algorithm, property settings, etc.  Should this part become corrupt due to inconsistency in header part then Windows is unable to open the file and throws a CRC, Cyclic Redundancy Checking, error or other types of error (Zip Recovery Software. 2013).
