Zipping Hosted Files

If you have hosted files you want to keep but don't really use, you can add them to a zip folder to save space.

About this task

When you add files to a zip folder, the original files are kept unless you manually delete them. Therefore, if your goal is to save space you should delete zipped files. However, files in a zip folder cannot be used so you should not delete anything you currently use or plan to use.



  1. Go to Settings > File Management.
  2. Navigate to the files you want to work with.
  3. Check the box next to the items you want to zip.
  4. Click Manage.
  5. Click Zip.

    The Create zip file window is displayed.

  6. Enter the name in the Filename text box.
  7. Click Create.
  8. If you're trying to save storage space, select the files you added to the zip folder and go to Manage > Remove to delete them.
  9. To unzip a zipped folder, select the folder and go to Manage > Unzip.
