I need help !
I'm using portable apps already a long time.
beside other applications, my complete private email history was on the stick.
Unfortunately the complete Thunderbird directory on the stick got corrupted yesterday.
Ok so I tried to restore my latest backup. The restore from portableapps took the backup file to restore it without reporting an error. Thought everything is fine. But it did not restore the Thunderbird (which I deleted on the stick before because it was corrupt).
When I tried to look at the zip file of the backup, I get the feedback from 7-zip that the zip file is invalid. Now I had a closer look at the file and see that the size is about 4GB which is - I think - the maximum file size for the filesystem.
I assume that when doing the backup, the zip file that was created got corrupt because of the size. Unfortunately portableapps did not report anything about this. the backup was done without reported error.
bad luck to me?
Now my questions:
1.) Can someone tell me how I can extract my emails from a eventually corrupt zip file?
2.) Is it possible that neither backup nor restore do any error checks in that direction? That can be seen as a big problem for portableapps !!!
Any help is appreciated (specially on how I can get my emails)
