@KarthikBallary

I think this is work.

  1. Get all file name with system.io.directory.getfiles(“folder path”)
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.io.directory.getfiles?view=netframework-4.8
  2. Use invoke PS to compress

@KarthikBallary,

This is very interesting requirement.

As per what I understand, you can perform the following steps:-

  1. For each item in directory.getfiles(“folder path”)
  2. convert to zip from (“item.tostring”) to (“item.tostring”)

I dont want every file to zip. I wnt grp of files to be zipped.

with zip activity is it possible please send it
