View Full Version : CRC error in zip file after download

17-02-2002, 12:59 AM
I'm using Win2k/SP2, Winzip 8.0, Norton AV 2002 and have an ADSL connection to my web site.

I have a 12MB set of install files I need to store on my web site. I zip it up and it's okay at that point.

I transfer it to my web site using Frontpage/Publish or FTP/LE, and download it again (via browser). I open the file with WinZIP, and it has a CRC error when I try an extract the original files.

I've tried WinRAR and the same problem occurs. I've tried smaller setup files, and still the same problem. I tried a different ISP and same problem.

Any help appreciated.

Check your ftp program is set to do binary transfers rather than text (which seems to be the default on windows).

Thanks for your suggestion.

I'm using FrontPage 2000 to publish the pages. 11MB of the 12MB file seem to be fine, so binary transfer seem to be working.

I've checked with my ISP and the file on his site appears to be damaged when it gets there.
