I packed my document with 7-zip Archive: music, photo, docs and others a couple of weeks ago. After I reinstalled the OS and tried to unpack this ZIP archive to my PC, 7-zip gave an error message: "Can't open file 'xxxx.7z' as archive". I didn't see this message on this archive. How to fix this error?

If you directly try to open the application without the 7ZIP application, then the message above might appear. This is especially for archives created with 7ZIP application. My advice is to re-install the 7ZIP application again and then try unpacking it.

Additionally, if you receive the same error and didn't assign any password to the archive, then you can use a recovery application. Visit the database of Software Informer to download an application of this type.
