how do i unzip a file thats where i get stuck?

 

Network Technician: D.Sandlin, Network Administrator replied 6 years ago
Ok.. DO you have a pc, or a mac?

And also.. do you have windows xp, vista, or windows 7 ?
Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
pc and windows 7
Network Technician: D.Sandlin, Network Administrator replied 6 years ago
Thanks..

To unzip a file.. ( which is a fancy word for open it.)

You need a program that will allow you to open it.. A zipped file, is just a file that was compressed to save space. Unzipping just means un compressing it..

Its much easier to do once you get the program.. You simply click it and it opens.

Heres the program you need.

http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

pick the top download , the exe one for windows 7 32 and 64

Once downloded.. Make sure to run the file to install the program

Then.. when you get to the step that says " unzip the file" simply click the file to open it..

i am completely lost with what to do with the factory restore file once i downloade it. i already downloaded the 7 z file
Network Technician: D.Sandlin, Network Administrator replied 6 years ago
oK..

you have to connect the ascend to the computer via the usb cable

and then after you have unzipped and open the file, copy the file to the memory on your phone.. It needs to be in the root folder, not any subfolders..

Let me know if you get that far..
Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
i cannot find the root folder
Network Technician: D.Sandlin, Network Administrator replied 6 years ago
