    I have a Windows Home Server and have tried to download Excel and Word files from it to my phone. They download but can't be opened with Docs To Go. An Excel file changes names from FileName.xls to 1.bin. I think they may be getting gzipped during the download. I tried using Download All Files and was able to name the Excel file, but it still could not be opened. Docs To Go reports it is not a valid Excel file.

    Is there an app that will unzip the file after downloading? I have not found one yet.

    Solved it!

    I installed the Firefox browser and was able to download and open the file with no problem.
