Hi @Georgi

Well spotted, you are correct. There is no compression used in this zip, it is used as a portable (cross-platform) storage container so regardless of the operating system, it should be easy to unzip the file.

Hope this explains the size difference.

Hi @brazileoin ,

:slight_smile: Thank you for the update !

In this case I think the txt extension could be more portable.

Best Regards,

Hi @Georgi

We actually going to reconfigure how we zip these files to ensure we enable compression. We use Python in our backend and it appears that the default option for Python’s zipfile library is to create a zip container but not to compress it.

Thanks again for your help!
