How to recover zipped files windows 10

So I downloaded some Icloud photos. They are in zipped state. I tried to move them over to a folder on my computer. It was lagging out so I canceled.

I see one photo has moved over. The rest are still stuck in the old zipped folder. According to the size of the folder. But the problem is I cannot open it right now. When I try it says: access to the compressed zipped folder is denied.

Long story short I'm an idiot and deleted my photos on Icloud before I did this. Anyway I can recover these photos?

One big thing I've learned over the years, never try and move something out of a zip it's deadly slow. Copy from a zip then delete the zip.

If you have trouble accessing a file, move it to the Windows Temp directory. That often bypasses the Windows bug where it thinks the system administrator doesn't have permission to access a file. Of course you should also reboot in case it thinks the file is temporarily locked for access, which happens when a program using the file didn't shut down properly.

Also try some better 3rd-party unzip utilities like 7zip.

Log into Windows as a member of the Administators group, right click on the file --> Properties --> Security --> Advanced --> Owner. Modify the owner / take ownership.

p.s. You're using the "recover" term incorrectly given your sitation.

That has never worked for me, not once in all the many times I've tried to do it that way. It's a very poorly implemented feature in Windows.

It has always worked for me.

So many things to criticize if I need to about your first post. (but I decided not to).

I looked into it - there is an option to recover files and photos for up to 40 days. But I guess it is for if you deleted from your phone. I deleted on the desktop website and nothing populates when I click the recover photos option.
