# MacOS – How to retrieve image files from a damaged zip archive file

archivedirectory-utilitymacoszip

When i tried to unzip using the Mac default Archive zip utility and the error message:
Error 1 - Operation not permitted.

Then I tried using 7zx and got the error message:
Cannot open the files as archive file

How can I retrieve image files from the damaged zip archive file?

Are there any tools to retrieve at least some of my files from the damaged zip file?
