Can you look through what is returned in the new file trigger? Google Drive should provide more than 1 version of the file at the bottom of the list

Hey @OliOdin, hope you’re well, I just wanted to check in here!

Were you able to get things resolved, or can we still help out here?

The Google Drive action should provide multiple different formats for the file being created.

In regards to the zip file, are the attachments coming from a Gmail - New Email trigger or similar?

If so, you can try out the New Attachment trigger for Gmail to have the zap trigger once for each attachment instead of zipping them up.
