Text and meaning of the error
This article will soon be removed because we have created a new text for this error message that can help you find a solution in an easier way. The new message reads: Apparently, the file you are trying to unzip is damaged or does not contain a file extension format. Please check these two situations and try again.
This error can occur when trying to unzip files using the Unzip files activity.
The error message can look like this:
end of central directory record signature not found
Such an error can occur in two cases:
- If the archive you are trying to unzip is corrupted.
- If the file you are trying to unzip is not an archive. For example, if you changed the file extension to .zip without actually adding the file to an archive.
