  • 10221 ZIP discrepancy

    In one zip file (confidential content, so I cannot disclose it) BC3 shows (root) files which Explorer and WinZip 9.0 do not. Any idea why? Thanks.

    Obviously it's because BC is a better zip utility than both Explorer and WinZip. I don't know why you bother with anything else.

    I wrote a utility a while ago that takes an existing zip and creates a new one with the same headers but without any of the file contents. Could you send us a copy of the zip if you ran it through that?

      You jest, but for me BC is indeed the perferred ZIP utility! I bothered with Winzip this time only to corroborate the BC3-displayed suspect content.

      Good man!

      Certainly. Thanks.

        Ok, it's up at http://www.scootersoftware.com/files/ZipStripper.exe. No gui; it takes a single zip as a command line argument and creates a new one next to the existing one named <filename>.stripped.zip. Assuming it shows the same behavior email it to support and I'll take a look at it.

            Chris,

            What utility was used to create the zip file that you're having trouble with?

              Sorry, I do not know and cannot guess. It was not created by me.
