Not previewing content of ZIP files

X1 Search 8.52 6001si (64-bit) on Windows 10

I've been using versions of this software for several years without problems but now it no longer shows the content of ZIP files in the preview pane. The file names themselves appear in the results pane, often with odd new file extensions. Not sure when this behavior changed, probably late 2016.

Any idea how I can get this working again?

SOLVED - more or less.

OK, possibly not an X1 issue. Moving ZIP files to new directory re-enabled previewing. Something to do with the "ready for archiving" attribute not being set on files in the old folder.

Now, if anyone knows why all my ZIPs are getting renamed (xyz.zip shows as xyz.docxb02rbty1.zhy) in the results view...?
