Hi @Nedcomoaks. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! Based on the error message you've provided, it seems the zip file is corrupted. I'd suggest archiving the files again on the source computer and seeing if a new file will extract. Hope that helps. If not, feel free to provide more information. Others in the community may be able to provide you with additional suggestions.

Often times with larger files, using the file manager will timeout before the process gets you finish, the best way to extract it would be with SSH

Unzip should work
