Why do you put them in a custom property? Just put them onto the stack 
card and compress from there.

I compress/decompress stacks all the time on Mac and PC w/out problems.
It'll take only slightly longer to download 50 separate files than one 
large file. I think I would make that design decision based on other 
criteria than just time.
