OneDrive : Zip and Unzip File
I would like to suggest you the basic idea regarding onedrive feature. Please add basic functionality like one can zip and/or unzip files directly on OneDrive so each time we don't have to download and upload files on OneDrive. Also, add the functionality to open zip file without extracting the folder on OneDrive.
Thank you for this suggestion. We don’t have specifics to share, but wanted to provide an update that we are looking into this for future updates.

I found this kind of problems in a lot of companies. The DEVS of the company aren't USERS. With luck they are testers or debuggers but not really USERS. USERS knows very well what they need. That's why the company ask for feedback ot to post new ideas from the USERS. They are inside a box without seeing the real world.
What really is unbelievable is that after they get the "new ideas" from the USERS, they don't do anything. Not even a little comment saying why they don't program the "new ideas".
Shame because USERS are really the CUSTOMERS of the company and the origin of the whole business.
Maybe we the USERS are the guilty of this situation, because we still continue being the CUSTOMERS of the company.
the fact that this is missing and we're in 2020 shows the inability to MS Devs to actually think....it's why I barely use onedrive and stick to drives with Devs who can think
It's shame I've migrated to Onedrive from Google Drive. While Google allows not just to view, but even to transfer data to Onedrive in ZIP, Onedrive can't even provide view for zip contents, not even talking about extraction. Shame, as now I need to download transferred data, extract and re-upload. Thanks MS! You always make me ask rhetoric "why!?" and often make me regret buying and using your products.

With large media files and photos the zip/unzip option within OneDrive would literally save days per month
Unzip is a must-have feature! commented
Please add this feature. Having to download, unzip, then upload the unzipped content adds so much time to the project. Being able to unzip directly on OneDrive would be amazing!
+1 to the much required feature.

Yep +1 for me I always have to spin up vms on Hetzner by my company to unzip and upload files.

E' una funzionalità che manca ed è molto importante per tutti gli utenti di Office 365. Perciò vi esorto ad implementarla ad esempio oggi trasferirò un file di 10 Gb su OneDrive ma poi non potrò estrarlo in una cartella senza doverlo scaricare. Su, su siate buoni.
Would be awesome to have it in the UI. For now I am using a workaround with Azure LogicApps or Flow to do this
Please create this feature for OneDrive! I work on multiple contracts and often receive zipped files from coworkers. It will take forever to download them, unzip and re-upload them. I am a huge fan of OneDrive in other ways and often beat the drum in favor of my projects using this platform but this is a big problem that really needs to be solved. Thank you.
Yes this is exactly what I am looking to do! Please allow this to be done. There is minimal memory and that is why we utilize the OneDrive program. Thanks!
Im dreading needing to download and the upload again the files I migrated from google drive ... this is gonna suck. Please add functionality to unzip in cloud. I don't have the disk space to do it all at once
ZIP/UNZIP is very common feature in applications, which are for file management. Why it is missing it in OneDrive. Please, implement if.
This thread is 4 years old. Every 3rd party app has this feature.
It‘s 2020 MS. Please 😀
