I was using a computer before and I have zipped all the files in that computer and transferred them to a flash disk, but i accidentally saved the zipped files in XML format and now when I try to open it as XML it gives me the following error on the explorer:


This page contains the following errors:
error on line 3 at column 1: Extra content at the end of the document
Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.

When I manually try to change the file format to zip and open the file, it gives me the following error on the winzip window:



Fatal error: This file appears to be incomplete or it constitutes one disc of a spanned Zip file. Please insert the last disc of the spanned set and try the operation again.


And the original source of these files (my old computer) is gone for good and it is not possible to get the original files again.


So, my question is: Is there any way that I can convert these XML files to readable versions or my files are gone forever????


I really need some guidance
