One of the nicer features in the Sitecore Media Library was the ability to upload a zip file of images and have it unpack them automatically. In the latest versions of Sitecore (version 8 update 4 and update 5 at the time of writing), this functionality is broken. The file uploads as a zip file and does not unpack.
- Load the Media Library
- Click Upload Files (Advanced)
- Select a zip file containing your images
- Make sure you tick Unpack Zip Archives
- Upload the file
The file is uploaded as a zip file and not unpacked.
This has been reported to Sitecore support and acknowledged as a bug in the MediaFolder.js file. If you are having the same issue, contact sitecore support and they will give you a fixed MediaFolder.js file. The public reference number for this bug report is 439231.

Which worked perfectly! Thanks Adam!
If you haven’t already tried it, I highly recommend installing SPE and trying it out! and if you like it, don’t forget to rate it and give it a :thumbs up:
