Can't extract gzip from a zip file


Hello,

I have a Data.zip data file that, among many other folders, contains some .gzip to which I need to have access to.
I have tried to extract the Data.zip file manually and through commands and I always get the same error when it reaches the first .gzip file. "An error has occurred while extracting files".

I have full permission and I have checked the Md5 and everything seems fine.

Thanks in advance,
Joana

so little data.

Ok, to start: What operating system are you running on? What versions of what tools are you using to 'unzip' the zip file? What is the underlying file system? Also, how big is the zip file, and the gzip from within it?

And as an aside: why do you have a zip file containing gzip files?

The compunter is Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
I used the unzip tool is 6.00
The zip file is 9 GB and the gzips are between 20 and 500 Mb.

This is data that I got from a sequencing center. It always comes like that, although I've never had this problem before.

I figured it out.

The size of the file was indeed an issue.
I run jar xvf filename and it worked perfectly!
