    15b8 under Win XP

    c:\> *zip /R /P /L6 "C:\Documents and Settings\Charles\Desktop\NewPC\Mew_2008_S" "C:\Program Files\Multi-Edit 2008\*.*"
    The Mew_2008+5 files does not exist prior to the *zip command above. I press Ctrl-C to stop the command. The incomplete Mew_2008_5 zip exists. I normally use PKWARE's Pkzipc but gave ZIP a try. I did the same command - different parameters with pkzipc then ctrl-C'ed and the zip file was erase. Any reason for the different behavior?

    What did you want it to do? Delete the zip file in all cases (even where it was complete and usable)?

    Rex, If I had pressed Ctrl-C to prematurely stop ZIP I would want:

    ) if a zip file by the same name existed, then to delete the current one and restore the old one
    ) if the zip file didn't exist prior to the command being executed and a BTRL-C pressed - then delete the zip file.

    You can add that to the suggestion list if you want.
