    I have a zipped file static resource containing various javascript files.  

    When I use The Welking Suiite to edit a javascript file inside the zipped static resource and execute Build Selection, the static resource is saved to Salesforce etc and everything works fine with the following exception.  I get an error in the Error List inside The Welkin Suite stating:

     Error 1 Zipped version of ContractsBatchUpload.resource was modified outside of The Welkin Suite. It was renamed to ContractsBatchUpload.resource.bak1 and changes from the unzipped folder were used.

    Every time I build changes, a new BAK file is saved to the project -> src -> staticresources folder.

    So I get, for example:





    After a few edits I get multiple BAK files accumulated that I periodically delete to clean things up.

    Any ideas what is causing that / how I can prevent it?

      Hi Ryan,

      Thank you for your bug report.

      This is known issue to us and it is present in our backlog to be fixed.

      Currently, as a workaround, you can follow the next steps to build your statics:

           1) please open the menu Project -> 'Project metadata components';

           2) disable the checkbox for the Static Resource metadata - it will be removed from your TWS project;

           3) after this, please open the 'Project metadata components' again and enable Static Resouces;

           4) please pull from Salesforce.

      I want to draw your attention that the described workaround works for one build, the further one will be failed with the same error again. We understand that it can be annoying to refresh static resources each time before editing, however, our developers will solve the issue soon.

      I will let you know when we will release the fix for this issue.
