Abstract

An archive file is a file that is composed of one or more computer files along with metadata. When the compression or decompression work done, the original/target archive file and the source/target files become isolated and very hard to transfer and secondly distribute. The relationship and the related file locations need maintained by users if they want to transfer and secondly distribute the files when necessary. This is not good practice and very inconvenient.In this disclosure, a system to setup relationship between compressed archive file and its extracted files (or source compressed files with the new generated compressed archive file) alone with necessary related UI tips for user to reduce the cost and time when doing subsequent transfer work or second distributions is presented.

Method and System to Quickly Transfer or Secondly- --Distribute Compressed Archive File Distribute Compressed Archive File

BACKGROUND

BACKGROUND:

:

An archive file is a file that is composed of one or more computer files along with metadata. Archive files are used to collect multiple data files together into a single file for easier portability and storage, or simply to compressfiles to use less storage space.

Compressed archived file is created or opened by compressed software tools.

Upload/download/distribute from/to web or other endpoints always use compressed archive file to reduce the processing time and management cost.

The relationship and the related file locations need maintained by users if they want to transfer and secondly distributethe files when necessary. This is not good practice and very inconvenient.

Compare: The system saves on data storage space and allows for the reconstruction of an original compressed file so not including the core ideas of this disclosure.

CLAIMS

CLAIMS:


Setup relationship between compressed archive file and its extracted files (or source compressed files with the new generated compressed archive file) alone with necessary related UI tips for user to reduce the cost and time when doing subsequent transfer work or second distributions.

The constructed subsequent archive file can do partially synchronized work when the extracted files from the compressed archive file are have changes (same to the source compressed files with the new generated compressed archive file).

The system is embedded in the general file explorer to provide functionalities for user to easily use.

ADVANTAGES:
Avoid repeatedly compressing work to save time and efforts when transferring or secondly distributing the files which has original compressed archive file existing in the file system.

User do not need to take care where the source/target compressed archive file are.

Embedded with the file explorer system to avoid using extra tools to achieve the same effect.

Easily implemented
