Version 11.3.2
If you are upgrading from any of the previous 11.x releases to Version 11.3.2, note that the Zip Files command now compresses files directly without including the specified folder in zip file contents, even if both these conditions are met:
  • you include a backslash at the end of the file path in the Specify Files to Compress field

If the specified folder is required in zip file contents, then the you must remove the backslash from the file path in the Specify Files to Compress field.
