Recreate files but without content to target drive

<< < (8/11) > >>

The customisable temp folder setting works but strangely the resulting is always empty!  I tried different settings on four computers all resulting in an empty  The only exception is if I leave the temp folder setting blank\default then it creates the correctly.  But of course this does not contain all the files because of the 255 limit.   :(

BTW thanks for "Files 2 Folder" I love that!

What are you using for the temp folder value?

Besides "leave blank for default" I has used a couple of dozen variations including root drives.  I have tried putting temp folder on usb flash, ssd sata, and in windows 7 a RAM disk.  Except for "leave blank for default" option all produce an empty  I have tried changing the name from to other names.  I have tried to put the destination zip in various places with no luck.

I have opened the the 1kb in notepad and get this some that looks like this  PK |-   not exactly though because I ca't get the last 2 characters to copy and paste.

Try this build, please:  Zero Zipper v1.0.5.5

The is working correctly now.  But I found that sometimes the file count inside the was wrong.  Some files were still being omitted from the This was a mystery that I wanted to solve so I tested many folders.  Customizing the temp folder location eliminated file name length as a problem. Using Windows 7 windows explorer I found files with question marks inside of a black diamond instead of a recognizable character\number.   I searched "question mark inside of a black diamond" and I found something called a Unicode Character 'REPLACEMENT CHARACTER' .

I mostly use a Windows Xp machine so it took a while to figure it out.
