  • What does 'Supports 7Zip files' mean? Does it mean you can have a zip file that contains up to 7 zip files? Also - when you say Temporary files saved on disk will be removed as soon as they are no longer required...how does that work? I was thinking of using this plugin to unzip files from a zip file retrieved daily and stored in a folder. The individual files would then be extracted to another folder and used for daily processing. Does this mean the 'zip' file is removed?
