Multi-file candidate applications are stored in the system as .ZIP archive files, a special kind of file that bundles multiple files into a single archive. When you want to update a multi-file application you will download the .ZIP archive, make the necessary changes, and then replace the original .ZIP file on the resume.

1. Download the existing .ZIP file

How you update or create the new .ZIP file will depend on your computer's operating system.
