Sample Data is Corrupt

Hello Magento

 

I want to  say that your magento file is corrupted  for version 1.9.2.4 and later  - Added Oct 11, 2016,

I have downloaded this file 3 times and all the three times it says files corrupt inside the zip file.

 

Kindly check and resolve the issue.

Re: Sample Data is Corrupt

I just tried downloading the sample data that you mentioned and it worked perfectly on my end. 

 

Can you try this with a different ISP and/or computer?

I am also facing the same problem. I am downloading the .zip format on Windows.

After downloading, while opening it's giving error ---

"Cannot open file: it does not appear to be a valid archive.

if you downloaded this file, try downloading the file again."

 

I tried it multiple times.

Re: Sample Data is Corrupt

The same problem here (the archive is corrupt). I downloaded many times and even from another pc, but still it doesn't work.

Any more suggestions?

snap.. zip tar and bz2 corrupt 

Re: Sample Data is Corrupt

Have you tried extracting the archive with a different tool? If you are using WinZip, try WinRar.

 

I've also confirmed that the archives have no issues. Using WinRar 5.31 (x64) on Windows10.
