My machine runs
Debian 6.0.7 and I have
Zip 3.0 (July 5th 2008), by Info-ZIP.
When I try to unzip a .zip file, 2~3 times out of 10 it would not extract everything. There would be 2-3 files missing.
At first I thought it was because of the file size and some limitations I didn't know but then I noticed it was doing that with small files of 150MB as well. Then i thought maybe it was because I was decompressing it through a bash script file so I tested with manually unzipping the files and again that wasn't the problem.
Finally today I checked it with a 140MB .zip file. I extracted the file both manually and using my .sh script 10 times and after each time I would run
ls -h -R > ../test_n.txt to keep a record of the folder after each decompression. After comparing all 20 files I saw that 7 out of 20 times it would miss from 2 to 8 files from the .zip file.
Anybody has any idea why this might be happening?
