Large ZIP File Won't Unzip After Download

Large ZIP File Won't Unzip After Download

New member | Level 2

I am trying to download a very large .zip file from my Dropbox to my computer.  It is 32 GB.  After about 30 tries, the entire file finally downloaded.  The file size matches the file size in Dropbox, but I am unable to zip the file.  The error message from my computer is that the zip file is empty.  Help!!!

Hi there @ChrP6442, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

Can you let me know which app you're using to unzip the folder on your computer? 

 

If possible, can you trying using another app to try unzip the folder and let me know if that helps?

 

Keep me posted!
