DNN version: 6.2.6

Using the File Manager, when I upload a zip and select "Dcompress ZIP Files?" it just uploads the .zip file.

I've verified that my maxRequestLength in the httpRuntime node of the web.config is large enough to support a .zip of this size.

Any ideas? Thanks

All ZIP files or just one in particular?

I've tried with a bunch of different zip files. It seems to be spotty. Sometimes it decompresses them on upload, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes I have to upload the zip, then decompress, sometimes that doesn't work. On all failed attempts, I don't get an error or warning.

I'll see if I can figure out what the criteria is for the failed attempts.

I'm seeing the pattern now. If I zip a directory, then upload that directory and choose "decompress" it doesn't work.

If I select a bunch of files, compress just the files into a zip then upload & decompress it works.

I guess it doesn't like directories that are zipped?
