    Hi Tech Guy Forums,

    I have a .7z file thats 1.25 GB but everytime I extract it it reaches to almost half then my PC just shuts down and gets restarted this is very annoying.

    I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit , I tried to extract it with winrar 64 bit but to no avail then I tried 7zip and still no luck. This is really starting to frustrate me. I have ran out of solutions maybe you guys can help?


    PS: I don't know what other information you might need but if you reply then I can give it to you.

    Hello & Welcome to TechGuy.org.

    Please run this forum's system info utility & post the resutls.
    http://library.techguy.org/wiki/TSG_Valuable_links

    Is the data on a hard disk drive or optical disk or flash media?
    Please copy it to a flash drive & an optical disk, just inc ase. Data back & redundancy will be your friend.

    How was the data compressed?

    Here's a tutorial for extracting data from .7z compressed files.
    http://www.ofzenandcomputing.com/zanswers/2476/

    If that doesn't work, I would
    1. scan for viruses using whatever anti virus program is installed on your computer.
    Do NOT remove any files. That decision needs to be made by an approved member of this forum.

    2. After you have backed up the .7z file, with the file on a flash drive:
    Open "computer" to determine which drive letter has been assigned to the flash drive
    start > programs / all programs > accessoreis
    RIGHT click "command prompt"
    Left click "run as administrator"
    When the command prompt opens:
    Type: C:
    press enter

    Type: "x": replace "x" with the drive letter assigned to the flash drive.
    For example, if the flash drive has been assigned the drive letter "F", you would type:
    F:
    press enter

    type: chkdsk /r
    press enter

    After chkdsk /r has run
    RIGHT click the title bar of the command prompt
    Left click "edit"
    Left click "select all"
    RIGHT click the title bar of the command prompt
    Left click "edit"
    Left click "copy"
    Paste the info to notepad, for a temporary location

    Return to this thread
    Paste the information into a reply.

    Return to the commadn prompt.
    type: exit
    press enter

    Thank you for your reply rainforest123,

    However the file was on the local disk C, so I tried to extract it on the local disk D and it worked fine for some reason. Your reply was highly regarded, therefore the problem is solved.
