I have just been asked if .gz can be unzipped in marketing Cloud?

I can't find a list of supported compressed files in the help docs

    By default, file transfers only handle zip files. I'd raise a case with SFMC Support. They have a Data Extract type that allows compression/extraction of Gzip files as part of your Automations that can be provisioned to the account.

  • Do you know if SFMC can unzip .gz files or is zip a default settings as well?

  • Default is zip for file transfers, but you can handle Gzip(.gz) files using the Custom Extracts I mentioned.
