I have a web app and I would like what is the correct way to compress a
directoy inside my application?
Currently I have the next code, but I have the problem that when the user
download the file, he can see the complete path inside of tar.gz file
(var/www/webapp/app_data/directory)...I would like to have just the folder
inside of tar.gz :)

       public static bool Compress(string localeFolder, string
            System.Diagnostics.Process process = new
System.Diagnostics.Process ();
            process.StartInfo.FileName = "tar";
            process.StartInfo.Arguments = " -czvf " + nameOfGzipFile +" " +
            process.Start ();
            process.WaitForExit ();

            return (process.ExitCode == 0);


Thank you !!!
