Windows 7: Revisit: Windows 7 missing file when zipping or compressing folder

Revisit: Windows 7 missing file when zipping or compressing folder

Hello forum users,
I am having a problem using the 'Send to>Compressed (zipped) folder' option. The problem is identical to the issue discussed in this thread:

missing file when zipping or compressing folder

Long story short, in the resulting compressed folder I lose the file that I right-click on to compress the files.

I'm using Windows 7's default built-in file compression. It is apparent that third-party compressing solutions are often preferred to this method, but I'm looking for a solution to this specific problem. Any help with this would be much appreciated, thanks.

After some review, here are some more details on my problem:

-there are about 200-400 small files (1-10KB average) that I'm trying to compress.

-this problem doesn't occur on my local C:, however it occurs on all mapped drives.

-after comparing the zipfldr.dll file on another workstation that doesn't have this issue, I found no differences in properties.

-the regedit entries for zipfold also appear identical to the entries on the workstation without the issue.

missing file when zipping or compressing folder
I have a very weird issue that is happening on more than 1 PC. When we zip or compress files to create one zip file, 1 file is always missing! the only way we can get around this is to open up WinZip and drag all the files in. How come we can't zip in windows 7! very frustrating:mad:.
