Can you elaborate more? I’m not sure I understand the question. Perhaps one example could help

#2 Updated by Julien Barde over 1 year ago

yes we wonder if it's possible directly in the Workspace to create a zip file / compress one or multiple files stored in the workspace

What is the purpose? What is that you want to achieve?

Whenevr you click download on an entire folder its content (included sub folders) is zipped and downloaded by your browser. Then you can upload the zip back wherever you want in the workspace.

Currently when we generate files in the VRE, if we need to download them for example, we can't compress them in the VRE...so we download the files one by one with a size that it 10 times bigger than the archive, and then we have to create the archive locally and upload the archive again if we want to have a zip file in the WS.
For people and countries with a low bandwidth, they totally lose the interest of the cloud. And it's not particularly interesting for the others to download and reupload everything if it can be done directly in the workspace.
A lot of application do it (RStudio does it by default when downloading)

Clear, my suggestion for the time being is to download the folder contacting the file, or create a folder and put the file you want to download. I opened a feature request to support the zipping #10353
