    Windows 7 - Uncompressing ZIP files - Wierd Issues...

    Hi, we've found that Windows 7 isn't unzipping all of the content of various zip files (there's no pattern) when you use "Extract All" - at least not when the zip file is on the network.

    Strangely, if you drag the files out, they're all extracted correctly.

    Has anyone come across this before, and did you find a solution to the problem?

    Thanks.

    Yes, Our head of ict had this the last 2/3 days. I was very confused, not found a solution yet. With the number of odd bugs and breakages I've seen this week and last, I was starting to think it was me causing the problems. I'm now happy, I know I'm not going mad. Whats your setup with regard to servers and network storage? Any virtualisation? Server 2008?

    Edit: Apparently it was fine last week for us.

    Hi,

    Yes, we are having a similar issue which I'm looking into. Windows 7 Clients (64 Bit Enterprise), Windows 2008 R2 File Server and have Symantec EndPoint Protection 11

    Cheers,

    Rob

    Windows 7 Pro (32-bit + SP1) clients in a non-virtualised Windows Server 2008 R2 environment. While we have a Windows Server 2003 file server on our network for serving media files, all other files are served from Windows Server 2008.

    (We've had the problem since we switched over from a Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 environment.)
