Upload Files (Advanced) fails when uploading MAC OS .zip file

  • Description

    While trying to upload Mac OS zip-packed files 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 because they are not of this type. The _MACOSX folder contains resource forks that are generated when a Mac user creates a .zip file using the Mac. They cannot be processed correctly and the process fails.
  • To resolve the issue delete the __MACOSX folder before uploading.
