Is it possible to create a zip file using Sitecore FileUtil.ZipFiles where the files to be added are from the Media Library items?

1 Answer 1


No, it's not possible wit FileUtil only.

What you can do is:

  1. Add a reference to Sitecore.Zip.dll
  2. Use Sitecore.Zip.ZipWriter class like that:
using (ZipWriter zw = new ZipWriter(FileUtil.MapPath("/test.zip")))
    var mediaItem = new MediaItem(item);
    zw.AddEntry(mediaItem.Name + "." + mediaItem.Extension, mediaItem.GetMediaStream());

Remember that your IIS process user must have write access to the folder where you want to create the zip file.
