Upload Files (Advanced) fails when uploading a .zip file created in MacOS

  • Description

    While trying to upload zip files created in MacOS with checked Unpack ZIP Archives option to the Media Library using Upload Files (Advanced) dialog, the following error message is displayed:

    Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation

    The issue occurs when trying to process *.jpg files from the _MACOSX folder as images. The _MACOSX folder contains resource forks that are generated when a MacOS user creates a .zip file. They cannot be processed correctly and the process fails.

  • To resolve the issue, delete the __MACOSX folder before uploading.
