After The Zip File Is Unpacked, the File Is Lost. Can It Be Recovered?

If you download many programs and files from the Internet, you may deal with many package files, and the package is to carry the package file or folder. After the package is decompressed, you can get the original file corresponding to the package. But sometimes it's very confusing that you cannot get the file after unpacking it.

"My client sent me a zip with a lot of photos. I'm anxious to use it tomorrow. When I unpack it, I found that there are no photos. It's really weird, why? The worst thing was that after I unpacked it, I deleted the package on the D drive. It is really annoying. Is there any way to help me find the deleted package file?"

General knowledge - the reason for finding no files after decompression

1.If you receive a package without a file itself, then you will not be able to find the file after decompression. You can check whether the original downloaded package contains the target file.

2.If you get an error during the process of downloading the package file, it will also cause the file not found after decompression. You can try another way and download it again, and then decompress it.

3.Decompression error. If your package file has a decompression password and the password is wrong, the extracted folder will also be an empty file. Please check if the decompression password is correct.

4.If the package is damaged, or the file of package itself is damaged, it is very common that you cannot extract the file.

Has your got the answer? But no matter what the reason is, you have to find the problems from the zip package. And the most important thing is how to recover the file that has been deleted, the following method is to describe the most effective file loss recovery method.

Recover your file with UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free

UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free is an all-in-one free data recovery software for different loss situations. After three quick and easy steps, your important zip package will be back.

Let UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free tell you how it can find the urgently needed package file through the following specific steps, so that you are no longer anxious.

Step 1: Enter the software to choose the format of the lost data

First of all, please open the UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free. The format selection interface for data appears in front of you.

There are two lines in the interface that represent the file format icons. All you need to do is to select the file in the package file format. This format is not listed separately. Then you can check the last icon from the left of the first line which represents other formats.

When the check is done, a small circle with a check mark will appear in the lower right corner of the icon. At this time, you can click the “Next” button on the right, as shown below.

Step 2: Select the disk where the package file was originally located.

What appears in front of you is the interface for selecting the disk. All you need to do is select the disk where the file you deleted is originally located.

Your zip file was originally stored on the D drive, then please select the D drive. After selecting,on the right side of the name line there will be a small circle with a check mark. At this time, you can click on the top right to click the scan button to scan your D drive, as shown below.

Scanning and searching the original disk

Scanning takes a certain amount of time. The length of time is determined by the files stored in your D drive. The more complex file type and the larger file will take the longer scanning time, as shown below.

Under normal circumstances, if in your disk memory there are 2GB files with various formats, it may take a few minutes to complete all scans. Please wait patiently.

Step 3: Select the zip package you need to recover

After the scan is completed, you can browse all the files on your D drive through the left side of the interface.

At this point you need to traverse the folder tree, then find the zip file you deleted and select it. Then click the "Recover" button in the upper right corner, as shown below.

If you don't find the zip file you need after scanning, you don't have to worry about it. UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free provides two ways to scan, one is the fast scan just performed. The advantage of this scanning method is high speed. But some deep files may not be scanned out.

In the case that this deep file is not retrieved, the deep scan will help you retrieve the needed package, but it takes a little longer. At this time, please click the “Deep Scan” button on the upper yellow font of the interface to scan more deeply immediately. Please wait patiently again, as shown below.

After the deep scan is completed, find the deleted zip file, select it and click the "Recover" button, then your zip file will return to you, as shown below. (For better recovery effect, it is recommended to perform a fast scan and then a deep scan when scanning missing files.)
