Is it possible for SharePoint to return files bases on a search which are stored within a zip file? Ive tested it with a Windows compressed file and the search returned nothing.



Not natively, only the file is crawled. You can add a ZIP iFilter and register it with SharePoint if you want to crawl the contents.
