Compressed Files


Some learning management systems allow educators to download submissions as a compressed file for portability. When Galileo comes across a compressed file when its processing a target directory it can do one of two things.

The first default option set, is to extract the archive, delete the archive, and add the contained files to the process. Don’t worry about bad formed paths in the archive file (D2L?), Galileo has a custom extractor which renames fixes that.

Currently, only Zip compatible archives are supported.

Process Options Type Default
Process.Archives.Extract Boolean True
A true/false setting of if any potential archives should be extracted when found in the target folder or its subfolders. Archives are extracted to a new folder within the target folder (and it's subfolders), given a unique name based on a hash of the archives path.
Process.Archives.Delete Boolean True
A true/false setting of if extracted archives should be deleted after extraction. Often the archive remains locked and is unable to be deleted resulted in a message in the log file. This is a minor warning and has no impact on the performance of Galileo conducting its analysis.
