I have some xz archives (that were created in Linux), I can decompress them fine in linux but I'm trying to open them in Windows (7). I've used both 7zip and ExtractNow. In both cases the archive opens ok but when I extract the file it says it's corrupted and it creates a zero byte file. Any ideas what the problem is?

I worked out that the problem was to do with ascii mangling getting the data off the ftp server. Setting the transfer to binary sorted it out.
