How do I unzip a zip file in a Resources or File Drop folder?

Once you have uploaded or created a zip file in Resources or File Drop, you can expand it to add each of the folders and files within the zip file to the tool in your site.

Go to Resources or File Drop.

Select Resources or File Drop from the tool menu in your site.

Select Actions, then Expand ZIP Archive.

  1. To the right of the zip file you would like to unzip, select the Actions menu.
  2. Select Expand ZIP Archive.


  • On mobile devices or small screens, the Actions menu displays as a down arrow icon.
  • You must have enough space available in Resources to store the contents of the file once it is unzipped.  For more information on space in Resources, see What is the Resources quota?

View unzipped files and folders.

The file is unzipped and a new folder with the same name as the zip file is automatically added to the Resources folder where the original zip file was located. The newly created folder includes the expanded contents of the zip file.

The original zip file also remains.
