Drop in ZIP - very unreliable

Post by Julian »

Pretty often I need to add a file to a ZIP or overwrite the file which is already included.
I use right-drag and drop on a ZIP file.
In many cases I get a message that the operation cannot be completed (although in some of the cases it is).

It would be nice to have some ZIP functionality directly inside in XY so it can add something to a ZIP without having to use the OS which aparently not always works and produces redundant confirmation dialogs.

There is a free library based on 7ZIP which can do a lot of things and it can be interated directly into a program.

What is the exact message, and is there any pattern?

Are you zipping folders that contain overlong items (> 259 characters)?
