Have any issues been reported with how MFT handles GZIP files vs ZIP files? We have a process that last ran on an older version of Director where we picked up a zip file and pulled it to our system for processing. I learned today that it has always been a GZIP file with .zip for the extension. I don't know what gzip is, but when we retrieved a zip file today, we could not open/extract from the file. Changing the extension from .zip to .gz apparently makes the file readable. Should I change the project to replace the .zip extension with .gz?

I'm not seeing anything in our Release Notes or internal wiki pertaining to this issue. GunZip files usually do have a ".gz" extension.
Is it possible that the files are being compressed with another type program other than GZip?
