Unzip folder mac (7Go and Terminal is not working)

Unzip folder mac (7Go and Terminal is not working)

Explorer | Level 3

 Hello,

As mentioned in the title, I've tried to unzip a folder (7Go) on a Mac and there was an error message (Error 2- non-existent file).

I've tried with Terminal but it hasn't worked (cd desktop then unzip file.zip). Does anyone know what else I can do? 

Thank you!

Hi @AgaZ22, I hope you're well today!

 

Can you try using another app to try unzip the folder? Some have mentioned around the Community here, that "‎The Unarchiver" worked for them when the OS option didn't.

 

Otherwise, can you let me know where you downloaded the folder from? 

 

For example, downloaded directly from your account, a shared link, or a transfer.

 

Let me know how it goes!

Hello Daphne, 

Thanks so much for getting in touch. It says it can't open the Unarchiver app as the identity of the developer can't be confirmed. 

The folder was downloaded from my Dropbox account.

Thanks again!

Thanks for getting back to me here @AgaZ22!

 

Can you try downloading the folder once more, using an incognito browsing window?

 

If there's no difference there, please try using another web browser all together.
