Testing a Zip file

This operation tests the integrity of the open Zip file (.zip or .zipx) and then presents a report with the results.

Using the WinZip® Ribbon Interface

  • To access the test function, open the Unzip tab (the Zip pane must be the active pane).
  • Click the top part of the Diagnostics button to test the Zip file and view a summary report.
  • To receive a more detailed report, click on the bottom half of the Diagnostics button and click Detailed on the dropdown menu.

When the test is complete, the results will display in the View Last Output window. Click the Clipboard Copy button to copy the report into the system clipboard so you can transfer it to a text editor or an email message.

You can press the Esc key on your keyboard at any time during the Test operation to stop the test.
