Hello hopefully someone can help me or already experienced same error and managed how to solve it.

I restored successfully a full windows client backup image using amfetchdump in the server.

The restored image is 28GB. I copied the image to a windows machine and couldn't opened with winrar until I installed winzip 12.x. Win zip opens and can extract all files without any problem.

My problem is that I can't open/list or extract this image from Linux. which program shall I have to use in order to be able to extract the files in the server?

What is the program and format used by the windows client to zip the backup images?

Thanks for your support

Zmanda Windows Client using the PKZIP's zip64 format for zipping archives. It is compatible with Winzip too. I dont think there is a program on linux to extract this format, You can try "unzip" though.
