I'm doing some work which involves opening a large number of zipped Excel files, checking they're OK, and if they are, that's fine - do nothing.
The speed at which I can do this is greatly impeded by the stupid messages I keep getting from Winzip. Every time I open a file - just to look at it and check, remember, not to edit anything - and then quit without changing or saving, it comes up with the stupid message: "[Name of file] has been changed since it was extracted. Update archive with this file?"
But I haven't changed anything - I've just looked at it, no more. So what's it on about?
Then, whatever I reply to that (Yes/No doesn't really matter, since it hasn't actually changed anyway - but I usually choose "No" to be on the safe side) it says: "[Name of file] has been changed since was extracted to a temporary folder. Delete the temporarily extracted copy of this file?"
To this one, I usually say "Yes", since if it's only a temporarily extracted version anyway, I don't want it kicking around to cause any confusion later.
Anyway, this all might seem no big deal, but when you've literally dozens to check, two error messages for every single one is no joke. Even if they only take a second each to dismiss, the annoyance is huge.
So why is it even reporting anything's changed in the first place? I'm just looking at the stuff...
