Windows 7: Zipping Multiple Files Not Working

06 Aug 2014   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Zipping Multiple Files Not Working


I have an .html file and an IMAGES folder with several .gif files that are used by the .html file.

Using Windows 7, I zipped (i.e., dragged) the .html file and the IMAGES folder into one .zip folder, which I had created.

I emailed the .zip folder as an attachment.

The recipient saved the .zip folder to his computer.

The recipient was able to display the .html file but the images are not displayed.

What is wrong?

Thank you!

1. did ypu check that the images were actually in the zip folder before you mailed it
2. did the recipient extract the files from the zip folder

In theory what you have done should work.

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:.
