Default Winzip help...

I recently found a .zip file however I'm having some issues. All the file names have invalid characters and can't extract them, so does anyone know a way on how to extract them?

Use winrar

OR

problem is what your extracting is being put into a directory where the "full path" of the directory+file name exceeds 255 characters in which case you will get an error.

Example

D:\Afolder\insert random 255 characters here\a file name.mp3

or post it here and me/someone cna try extracting it O_o

Well, I sorta found the probelm out. They're all in a folder with invalid characters. I can view the pics in winRAR, but can't extract.

EDIT: Fixed it, and nothing new.

Try using Lhasa instead of Winzip/Winrar. That should extract it. If not, I have no idea.

I have the same problem whenever I try to unzip a file with a JP name. If the archive file itself or the folder you're extracting to has unfamiliar characters in it WinRAR and WinZIP will give you an error. I usually just rename the file / archive, using the Romanji translation if it's in Japanese, and it extracts just fine.

Yeah, renaming the file works, but all the images were in a JP named folder which were giving me errors when I tried to extract them. I did find a repair button in WinRAR though >.>

winrar shouldn't have a problem extracting words in japanese, chinese, korean etc etc... I've done it many many times O_o (without using repair option)

It wasn't in japanese, it was in something else.
