Trying to open a ZIP file that I've downloaded from my website . I'm getting this message:

Unable to unarchive (Error 1 - Operation not permitted.)

*I've set the permission settings to what I though was right - owner, read and write.

*I've used the Disk Utility to repair and it did.

Now I'm here.

    It may depend on how and what the Zip file was generated with. If the Zip file was generated with a Mac. Scroll to the bottom of this link for a free download of Stuffit Expander.
    If it was generated by a PC with Win Zip Stuffit will open it if it is not of an Obscure format that was generated buy a PC Program.

    I have exactly the same problem with a large file 2GB+ that I archived with OSX and I get the same error message when I try to unarchive it. It's really strange because I have already tried opening the zip file before trashing the original about a week ago and it worked! I haven't really made any changes to the system or added anything since then. I also tried using the latest version of Stuffit as suggested but I still couldn't open the file. Any tips or other ideas as to what might be causing this?

    I have the same problem than dot. Never could expand it after deleting the original (also archive trough OS X built in compressor). I finished deleting the zip file, could not make it work and became desperate.

    That was it, I needed to download Stuff It Expander. For some reason, I thought it automatically came installed on my ibook.
