For my everyday work, I have a few DMG files that I keep on cloud storage. At the beginning of the day, I download my DMGs, convert them from Compressed to Read/Write using Disk Utility (OSX). At the end of the day, I convert them back to Compressed and upload.
It might sound cumbersome, but I sort of like it.
My question is, what if I ditched that workflow for something where I just download a Zip file (or something similar), unzip it, modify my files, zip it back up, and reupload it? Would I lose my file metadata or anything else useful compared to what I get by using DMGs?
Are there any other options you could suggest that make it easy to download ONE compressed file, modify what's inside it, and re-upload it?
Please don't suggest using Dropbox, Gdrive, etc.
