How does one get the files from the zip folder uploaded to their Esword?

You need to use a zip file utility to unzip the the zip folders and extract the e-sword modules from them. Once the modules are extracted they can be installed in E-Sword

By a modern version of Windows: double-click on the zip file and move the file inside to the e-Sword folder.

C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword

 

here is a free zip program:

I just made this video of just how simple it is to do what you want to do. Now, this video is pretty raw, as in no editing has been do to it, so you get the lot of what's on my Desktop.

It's very important to consider the settings of your zip application, because limitation is applied to every updated compression tool.

Could you expand on what you are getting at. At the moment you're not really saying anything.

If you have Windows 10 just double click on the zip file, and when it opens then right click on the file you want to copy. Go to your eSword resource folder, you will see other eSword modules in there, then right click in that folder and choose paste.

 

You don't need to bother installing other zip app's, etc, that will just confuse and complicate things for you.

Only if one is a total non compos mentis, of which I have extreme doubts that there are any here.

 

That said, when it comes to creating zip files, Windows has a considerable and a marked lower compression ratio when compared to e.g., 7zip which will compress a file up to about 90+%. Just to give you an idea, a 624MB dctx file, using 7Zip's 7z compression algorithm, compressed the file down to 97MB, and using its zip format compressed it down to 126MB. Windows compressed it down to 137MB

 

So, when it comes to actually creating zip, rar, and other compression methods, I prefer to use a seperate compression tool, such as Winzip, 7Zip (my favorite) or ZipGenius. Moreover, creating a zip file is now a no brainer considering that one can do it directly from Windows File Exploder (oops, I mean "Explorer") :lol:

 

Trust you will find this information useful.

That's what I use, and of all the File compression tools I've come across and used, this has the most brutal compression algorithm.

 

My honest assessment of this program, it has to be the best.

Reminds me of a Rube Goldberg Machine... ;-) All he wanted to do was transfer a module to the resource folder. :-)
