Well, I guess no one else has heard of some way to solve this problem either. But I did find something I'd overlooked earlier. I use WinZip for zip files and in one of the views WinZip allows, you have options available to you, one of which is Path. When I sorted the files according to path, and created the folder according to its original name it was easy to drag the right files into the right folder. It actually made things easier for me because not only did I NOT have to rename each of 1900 files, but I don't have to put them together like a jigsaw puzzle now either.

Originally these files were in their own folders but the folders were somehow stripped away. When the folder structure was removed many (very very many) of these files within the zip file have identical file names. I can view the contents of the zipped file but I cannot save the entire unzipped content because it wants to replace all same file names. I need to keep the original file name so that I can put this puzzle back together eventually. So, what I've been doing by hand is one by one appending a number to the end of the file name, like default01.asp, default02.asp, default03.asp, etc. Does anyone know of a handy little app that can do about the same thing, but faster?
