Gunzip Problem

Hi all,
when I tried to extract the contents of my gz file using gunzip I'm getting an error like "unexpected end of file". As I have some very important info in that zip file, I'm desparate to unzip it. Please help me in this regard.

Thanks a lot,

Try using unzip instead or testing it with gunzip -t
