Zip file partial downloads no longer available

Starting May 2021, it will no longer be possible to download individual files or subsets of files within .zip file previews in OneDrive and SharePoint on the web . Instead we recommend downloading the entire .zip file, extracting its contents and using the files needed. In the past, we have received customer feedback that at times when a user selects a subset of files to download from within a .zip file, the files are not downloaded successfully. As we focus our investments on downloading entire .zip files, we are retiring the partial download feature as users can edit .zip files as needed once downloaded.

Key points:
