I have a problem with my extraction programs, the backstory is that i've created a archive file before i reformatted my computer which consisted of all my personal file,settings, programs etc. and i even checked to see if it worked and then inserted it into a usb drive . Well it turned out that after i reformatted, i downloaded the same program called 7zip that created the archive and it couldn't extract it and said that it couldn't open it as a archive, i've checked with my other extraction programs i just downloaded and it won't even budge, so is there a way i can fix this????

A long shot, but try copying the 7z archive to your hard drive first, then see if it will unzip.

Nah i've tried that already, but i've been messing around and it seems that somehow the usb drive actually corrupted my archive files.
