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.

Please add zip file viewer to onedrive - or external plugin. Thank you.BV
Unzip feature would be a Huge help! Copy & Paste from File Explorer to OneDrive would also be useful.

This would make life much easier... and greatly help with upload speeds!
It's embarrassing that this is not available in 2021. I've wasted hours of time uploading zip files that I'm now going to have to upload again individually. Sort things out Microsoft!
This suggestion would aid migration from Google services to Microsoft cloud, because Google TakeOut already supports porting data directly into OneDrive, but the data arrives as ZIP files. So the files then need downloading from OneDrive, unzipping, and re-uploading to OneDrive.
We are in 2021, there is no Zip support on OneDrive, what a shame.
This should be an existing feature already if Microsoft want to remain a pioneer in PaaS area.
This will greatly reduce the traffic to/from the cloud tiers.
Can we have this feature soon please Microsoft?

More votes from me! I have some large archive zip files that is a pain to download when I just need an odd file from. Either a way to go into them and pull a file out, or extract directly on the cloud would be great.

I would love to have this feature without having to download, unzip, and upload. Specially for Large sets of Files over 250gb
Please allow unzipping of zip file within one drive
I agree. This would save a lot of time and bandwith.
I want to move my files from box to onedrive. but under these circumstances it takes me a day to do this. Please add file compression and decompression feature. In this way, I can carry out the migration process within seconds. It's strange that you couldn't think of it.
please i support this suggestion, it will make our life easier.
for instance when files are exported from google cloud to onedrive, the files are in ZIP format and large. It is too much work to download, unzip and then upload.

This is an essential feature.
It is necessary to open unzip zip files without downloading on onedrive.

Agree with everyone else.
There's no reason to port data from Google Drive / Photos to OneDrive so that you will need to then manually download, extract and re-upload each file.
I have 229 zip files that each of them are 2GB. It would be madness for me to do that for all.
This feature is a must for an online storage
