    I have encountered a recurring problem when zipping large files using the internal zip command. The zip is created, a zip /test reports okay and the file can be unzipped (using unzip) but the internal structure of the zip is buggy causing other programs to throw errors. For example,

    Data_20140514.zip: The file "Landline_20140514.csv" header is corrupt​

    It only appears to be the header that's corrupt. The data seems intact.

    The zip contained:

    5/14/2014 12:44 1,336,266,952 Email_20140514.csv
    5/14/2014 12:37 5,032,643,456 Landline_20140514.csv
    5/14/2014 12:31 1,746,621,055 Mobile_20140514.csv

    I'm still unable to reproduce the problem here, but I've passed it on to the zip library developers. I'll let you know if they find anything.

    I can try to create a test file if that would help.
