Disabling Zip File access

Hello,

In WF2 (maybe WF1 as well?) one can now open Pro|E files from inside a zip file.  We've used zip files here for archiving.  We also use them as a sort of back up for things like drawing formats, templates, start parts, etc.  If a drawing format or start part gets accidentally over written, we can easily retrieve the file from within the zip file in the same folder.  However, now that Pro|E can get into the zip files, this simple backup is no longer safe.

Can I turn off the ability to access files within zip folders?

Thanks,

Doug Schaefer

You could password-protect the zip files...
