A CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) process enables the user to identify the errors that occur during data transmission. It is highly beneficial in those cases, when the user wants to verify that the downloaded file is corrupt or not. If the file is corrupt, the user encounters a CRC error message. After the error message appears, the data saved in the downloaded file becomes inaccessible. To access the data in such cases, the user needs to restore the file from an updated backup or download the file again. However, if the file can not be reloaded and the backup is unavailable, then the user needs to repair the corrupt file. To do so, the user needs to opt for a powerful third-party Zip Repair application.
