every time i unzip a file with the unzip command it extracts everything but one file this file always has at least one questionmark instead of a character and has a size of 0 bytes. does anyone know what i am doing wrong or how to fix this?

It would help if you shared the broken archive file... otherwice no chance to know what's going on.

Yeah then it's broken and cannot be helped.

If you bought it you can probably request a new copy.

I assume you have downloaded the archive to some other computer and successfully able to unzip it, without errors, right? Also, when you run the unzip on Sailfish, there is no warning of any kind, regarding e.g. the file being corrupted or unknown zip version or such?

Oh, and BTW does it happen only with that music archive, or did it happen in some other circumstance?
