We have a server which is overwhelmed by files used by a web app. Because the number of files in the server is too great the overall performance of the whole server has degraded (including other apps).
The server is using Windows NT, and I think the file system should be NTFS.
Can we zip up multiple files into one single zip file, so that the number of files decreases? For example, we zip 10 files into a zip file, would the number of file decrease from 10 to 1?
