To remove/delete a file it seems do *not* need to UnZip (at least not
obviously so).
Simply do everything exactly as if makeing a Zip but see this (in

ZOPT.fDeleteEntries = zDelEntries ' 1 If Files Passed Have To Be Deleted

So, simply include zDelEntries=1
and in the file list add the file(s) to be deleted

But having got this far, and for future reference, I still can't figure how
to zip files with only partial paths, typically the path beyond the zip-file
