Should I take out the spaces from the filenames?

Why are there single quotes around 2 of the files?

--- Post updated at 12:28 PM ---

Sorry, I got mixed up. I was in the wrong directory.

I want to zip up all .sh files as well as On_Resume.

This command below works.

I think you are right in that filenames with spaces cause problems.

I will keep that in mind.

Code:
zip -u Ubuntu_Scripts.zip *.sh *.rb *.c *.py *.txt On_Resume*
