How to Perform ZIP Recovery on Mac

ZIP is a file format used for data compression and archiving. A ZIP file contains one or more files that have been compressed, to reduce file size, or stored as is. The ZIP file format permits a number of compression algorithms.

The format was originally created in 1989 by Phil Katz, and was first implemented in PKWARE's PKZIP utility, as a replacement for the previous ARC compression format by Thom Henderson.

The ZIP format is now supported by many software utilities other than PKZIP. Microsoft has included built-in ZIP support (under the name "compressed folders") in versions of Microsoft Windows since 1998. Apple has included built-in ZIP support in Mac OS.

ZIP files generally use the file extensions ".zip" or ".ZIP" and the MIME media type application/ZIP.ZIP is used as a base file format by many programs, usually under a different name.

But as the other formats in the world, the ZIP files also have to face the data loss problems. Today we will find ways to perform ZIP recovery on Mac so that you don't need to worry about it.
