FIRST:

Let me notify to all that the 7zip file has a password AND I KNOW WHAT THE PASSWORD IS OF THIS FILE.
if i type a wrong password deliberately, i am not able to see whats in it OR extract the content within.

BUT when i use the right password i can see the files in the 7zip file AND then i'm able to extract it.


My question:

I want to know i can fix an error know as "wrong password error".

i keep getting this error every time the extraction procedure reaches 50%

I'm not asking advice on how to hack passwords or crack the 7zip file or something like that, i just want to know why i get this error every time the extraction procedure reaches 50% and how to fix it.

AGAIN I'M NOT ASKING TO HACK OR CRACK IT.

(just want to make it clear to everyone, so that no one gets the wrong idea)

A compressed file can contain files encrypted with different passwords. It can even have some files password protected and others not. Either this is the case or your file is corrupted (but I would expect a different error in this case). Contact the person who provided the file and ask them about this, or ask them to send you a new copy.

i posted some pics, maybe you can see something that could tell me what the cause could be. (other than wrong password, i checked with someone else and he was able to extract the content with the same password that i am using)

In that case, just stop banging your head against a brick wall. Ask the someone else to send you the extracted files. If necessary they can zip them into an archive without password protecting it. It sounds as if your copy of the file is corrupted.
