  1. Compressed ZIP Folder not showing image files within, error when attempting to unzip.


    I recently began using DropBox to download files, and I was able to download one folder perfectly fine, able to unzip and view image files at will. However, the second ZIP folder I downloaded from my DropBox account could neither be unzipped nor could any files be viewed within the folder. The error I receive when attempting to unzip the folder is "The Compressed (zip) Folder ... is invalid." I have 824 GB of free space on my (CCompressed ZIP Folder not showing image files within, error when attempting to unzip. :) drive and the folder in question is supposedly 285,936 KB, which is surprising due to the lack of images able to be seen. I asked the creator of the DropBox folder itself and they stated that they could download and view the contents of the folder without any issue, so it must be an error on my end. I do not have Storage Sense active and despite my best efforts could not enable Controlled Folder Access for DropBox, which were the only options I saw that could have any effect.

    :)

  3. Is a zipped (compressed) file safer to archive than an unzipped one?

    Hello Burnett,

    Thank you for bringing up your query on Microsoft Community.

    Zip (compress) files are the common type of archive files that compress data.

    Compressed files take up less storage space and can be transferred to other computers more quickly than uncompressed files. You can work with compressed files and folders in the same way that you work with uncompressed files and folders.

    For more information, you may refer:

    (Applies to Windows 10 as well).

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.
