What I do:
I connect via SSH. Open a folder, and right-click a file to select Create archive (name).tar

What happens:
A tar archive is created in the same directory. However the name does NOT end with .tar, because the new file name is truncated after any white space. If there are no spaces in the file PATH, he entire name is used, and the archive ends with .tar. (yay!)

If right-click on the file name and select create Archive-> file name.zip and the file path has any spaces it it, no zip file is created. (I searched the entire computer just in case the file was being saved elsewhere.)

If the file path name does not have any spaces, then all 4 types of archives are created successfully in the same directory.

The Expand archive did not work for all 4 types (zip, tar, b2, gz), if there are no spaces in the file name, but the file path does include a space.

I tried this while connected to both Mac OSX 10.3.9 & 10.4.9 with the same results for both.

Thanks! Log follows:


  • Can not create a ZIP archive if spaces in file path:
	zip warning: name not matched: with
	zip warning: name not matched: space.gif.zip
	zip warning: name not matched: /Users/macmedix/Documents/macmedix/filename
	zip warning: name not matched: with
	zip warning: name not matched: space.gif

zip error: Nothing to do! (try: zip -rv /Users/macmedix/Documents/macmedix/filename . -i with space.gif.zip /Users/macmedix/Documents/macmedix/filename with space.gif)

  • Creating a Zip archive (no spaces in file name) Works OK:
 adding: Users/macmedix/Documents/macmedix/filename_no_space.gif	(in=32336) (out=31701) (deflated 2%)
total bytes=32336, compressed=31701 -> 2% savings


  • If a filename has no spaces, but the path name does have spaces, then the archive operation is not successful.

So the problem appears to be spaces in the file name or file path. Either will cause a problem.
