  • I would think that zipping them decreases the chance becuase if on the receiving end they are "unzippable", then the file was probably transferred correctly.

    While in today's world we take for granted the ability to "send a file", it's an incredibly complex process and the designers of the Internet did wonderous things in designing that functionality.

  • I would agree that zipping will have little chance of increasing the chances of issues - most problems i have seen come from different versions o Project, a PC not powerful enough to run project or plain unlucky chance.

  • IMO, I guess the moderators have already noticed that it was by accident so no problem.

    It may happen. I would suggest you use a checksum verifier.
