How to test an archive
“Test Archive” is a feature that checks an archive for its corruption by performing the following tests:
When data in the archive is compressed, Bandizip performs its decompression and displays an error message if any data corruption is detected during the process.
When the archive is in a format that stores checksum information such as CRC32, Bandizip compares it with information of the decompressed data. Bandizip displays a CRC error message if any discrepancy is detected between them.
The following archive formats provide checksum information:
ZIP, RAR, 7Z, ARJ, LZH, ALZ, EGG, GZ, ...
The following archive formats provide NO checksum information, which means it’s unable to check an archive for any CRC error:
TAR, ISO, IMG, UDF, ...
When the archive is transferred over the Internet and then interrupted, truncated data may occur. Bandizip detects the truncation and displays an error message about the problem.
