05-19-2008, 12:21 PM #1Opening a corrupt Stuffit Archive
first off, I apologize if I started my very first post asking a question that's been answered on another thread... I really did look! honest!
ok, so I have a HUGE (8Gb) .sit file that I cannot open. The error message it gives is:
"An error occured attempting to expand
The archive may contain damaged content
does anybody have any ideas for salvaging this file?
or know of any company that provides this service?
(seeing how I've seen forensic shows where people have gotten files off of hard disks that were burned, buried, underwater and befouled - I've gotta believe there's SOMETHING out there to rescue my wayward Stuffit file!)

thanks - yeah, I gave Unarchiver a shot - but it was a no-go
my Stuffit expander is 12.0.1
I tried UnRarx - on the off-chance it would recognize a Stuffit archive
OpenUp is another one I gave a shot to
I'm even ftping up the file so that I can move it around a bit and try it on some Windows applications!
sigh - if only Jack Bauer would lend Cloe to me for a half a day
