Hi Scott,
I've never had need to use anything but basic unzip features, until now.
What you say makes sense, else why would it have need to store the original
file path, and after spending 2 days on extracting them and building a
folder system manually I surely want to know how to do it easily next time.
I looked around and found it and now I could kick myself.  I didn't turn
that feature off I just didn't use it!!  I've always dragged and dropped the
files from the zip file to wherever I wanted them. If I had simply used the
big giant EXTRACT button on top it would have done it all for me in seconds
what it took me probably 8 hours to do manually.
Pass the dunce cap over, my turn to wear it for a while.  lol

Thanks Scott. =)

Hi Pam,

The path that you see is the path that the files were originally in,
and WinZip has an option that you can turn on (which is apparently
turned off, for some reason, but I think it's on by default, so you
apparently turned it off at some point) to extract the files using the
original paths, so that the first default.asp would go into
projects\pstryker\Test3, etc. I don't have WinZip installed on this
computer right now, but I've used it before and it DOES have that

If you can't find the option, then install another Zip program. The
only way that you would NOT be able to extract to the original path
would be if the original path were not stored (PKZIP has the option to
not store the path). Since you can see the path listed, then it was
stored. I'll check at work today and see where the option is in
