Path Finder can't extract zip while other apps can

When I try to unzip a zip files, often I get a Path Finder Error! It tells me an "error occurred while preflighting the item" and it's a damaged zip archive.

But yet the Mac Finder or an app like The Unarchiver can do it just fine. That doesn't lead to confidence in Path Finder.

    First of all, please accept my apologies for such a delayed response. I understand how frustrating it might be not to receive any response for such a long time. I apologize and will make sure this won’t happen again.

    Can you please specify if the following issue still persists once you update your Path Finder 10 to the latest version available, e.g. 10.0.2?

    Looking forward to your reply!

    Best Regards,
