Rule 1: Maximum Size of a Decompressed File

A compressed file – upon decompression – must meet the specified limit.

Example: You set the limit to 20MB.

Scenario 1: If the size of archive.zip upon decompression is 30MB, none of the files contained in archive.zip will be scanned. The other two rules are no longer checked.

Scenario 2: If the size of my_archive.zip upon decompression is 10MB:

  • If my_archive.zip does not contain compressed files, Worry-Free Business Security Services skips Rule 2 and proceeds to Rule 3.

  • If my_archive.zip contains compressed files, the size of all decompressed files must be within the limit. For example, if my_archive.zip contains AAA.rar, BBB.zip and EEE.zip, and EEE.zip contains 222.zip:

    my_archive.zip

       

    = 10MB upon decompression

     

    \AAA.rar

     

    = 25MB upon decompression

     

    \BBB.zip

     

    = 3MB upon decompression

     

    \EEE.zip

     

    = 1MB upon decompression

       

    \222.zip

    = 2MB upon decompression

    my_archive.zip, BBB.zip, EEE.zip, and 222.zip will be checked against Rule 2 because the combined size of these files is within the 20MB limit. AAA.rar is skipped.
